Simy KADOSCHE (later Simone Lagrange) was born on October 23, 1930, in Saint-Fons (Rhône), where she lived at 37 rue Raspail. She was arrested with her parents, Rachel and Simon, who had hidden the two younger children. Tortured by Klaus Barbie, who wanted to make her tell where her brothers were, Simy held firm. She was deported with her mother on convoy 76 of June 30, 1944; her father followed them on convoy 78, which left Lyons on August 11. Although only 13, Simy was selected for work; she lost her mother, then her father, struck down before her eyes. She survived to bear witness, ardently and unremittingly, to what she had gone through and what she had seen.
