"This sto­ry has haunt­ed me since I was a child," begins Anne Sin­clair in a per­son­al jour­ney to find answers about her own life and about her grandfather’s, Léonce Schwartz. What her trib­ute reveals is part mem­oir, part his­tor­i­cal doc­u­men­ta­tion of a less­er known chap­ter of the Holo­caust: the Nazi’s mass arrest, in French the word for this is rafle and there is no equiv­a­lent in Eng­lish that cap­tures the hor­ror, on Decem­ber 12, 1941 of influ­en­tial Jews -- the doc­tors, pro­fes­sors, artists and oth­ers at the upper lev­els of French society -- who were then impris­oned just fifty miles from Paris in the Com­pieg­ne-Roy­al­lieu con­cen­tra­tion camp. Those who did not per­ish there, were tak­en by the infa­mous one-way trains to Auschwitz; except for the few to escape that fate. Léonce Schwartz was among them.
