Storyboard Text

  • So how was your day mom?
  • When the Nazis came to power in 1933, Irene’s older brother, Berthold, was attending public school. Three-years old Irene was at home with her mother. 
  • When the Nazis forced Jewish children out of public school, I began attending a Jewish school. I was a ‘daddy’s girl,’ and my father would take me home from school on his bike.
  • Bye!
  • After the Nazis burned our school, my older brother left for safety in Britain—I was too young to go with him.
  • I dont like it here!
  • In 1940, when I was ten, our family was sent to Gurs and then Rivesaltes, terrible camps in southern France. The food was awful.
  • Speaking french...
  • One day the SS came to our convent looking for hidden German Jewish children. One of our girls, who was fluent in French, did the talking for us. It worked. The Germans left, and we were safe.
  • Anyone speak french?
  •  Irene was freed by Allied troops in July 1944. After being transferred to several children’s homes in France.
  • Thank you!!
