Léon and Huguette KLEIN were born in Paris (12th arr.) on April 27, 1930, and February 4, 1937, respectively. They lived at 10 rue des Deux-Ponts, an apartment house where some one hundred Jews were arrested between July and September 1942. On July 16, 1942, their father, Ojzer, their mother, Brucha, and the two children were arrested. The oldest brother, Israel-Markus, age 23, had already been deported in June, on convoy 4. Their father was then deported on convoy 13 and their mother, separated from her children, on convoy 14. Huguette was deported on convoy 20 of August 17 and Léon on convoy 35 of September 21 – making five members of the same family deported on five different convoys. The only one to escape arrest was Cyprian, 20, the oldest daughter.
