On October 20, 1943, the Gestapo took over the family center of La Verdière, in Marseilles, which was under the auspices of the UGIF. Nine mothers and their 28 children were arrested. Among them were the ARROVAS family. Shown above is the mother, Sultana, and her oldest daughters, Esther and Victorine, who escaped the roundup. Between them is Rachel, age 14, who was deported on October 28, 1943, on convoy 61 with her mother and the four youngest children (first row, left to right): Josette, age 8; Sabeta (Sabin), 4; Germaine, 7; and Marcelle, arrested on her 11th birthday. All the children were born in Marseilles.
