Maurice GERENSTEIN, born on January 3, 1931, in Paris, and Liliane GERENSTEIN, born on January 13, 1933, in Nice, were among the 44 children at the UGIF/OSE home set up in Izieu. Their parents, Chapse and Chendla, were deported to Auschwitz on November 20, 1943, on convoy 62. Chapse was a musician and played trumpet in the Auschwitz camp orchestra. He survived and emigrated to the United States. Liliane wrote this heart-rending letter found at Izieu after the roundup of April 6, 1944, a letter written to God only a few days before she, her brother, and her friends were deported on convoy 71 and killed.
