Jewish Scouts Dinard and Beaulieu/Dordogne World War II #france

Alice Josephs

My mother, who was born in 1931, and her elder sister were pupils at the De
Hirsch school in Paris >from 1938-9. They were evacuated with the Jewish
scout movement first to Dinard and then to Beaulieu in the Dordogne until
June 1940.

There was an older girl called Annette and also children including girls
called Jeanette, Helene, Marguerite and Simone. Along with my mother, their
first names may have originally been of non-French origin and changed when
in France.

I would like to ask if there is anyone else out there who was at the De
Hirsch school and/or was evacuated to Dinard and Beaulieu at the same time
as my mother? Have there been any books or research on this?

My mother met two other survivors >from that time after the war Madame
ALTSHUL who lived in Paris and her daughter Charlotte ALTSHUL who was in
Switzerland in 1948. There was also a son ALTSHUL who survived the war
elsewhere. Madame ALTSHUL may have been interned with my grandmother in the
Velodrome d'Hiver (the bicycle racing stadium) in Paris. The ALTSHUL mother
and daughter both had flaming red hair, if this jogs the memory of anyone.

The name ALTSCHUL is not common in France : only
9 of them are listed in the current telephone
directory, among whom is a Charlotte A. I'm going
to send you her address privately.
