Adelaide Hautval


I am helping a student, Rachel, to write a report on Adelaide Hautval. We are interested in any information you can give us on her life before and during the Holocaust. We know that she was a doctor and she risked her life to help people in the death camps. She was from France. She was in Auschwitz.

We would appreciate any information you could send us.

I am one of the persons who responds to questions addressed to The Holocaust History Project. Using a specialized search program (Web Ferret) I was able to find some references to Dr. Adelaide Hautval. The last two, housed in the Wiesenthal Library's web page are the most informative. They also show several photographs. You will note that their source is Macmillan's Encyclopedia of the Holocaust a two volume book that can be found in most large public libraries. You may locate it by its ISBN number:

ISBN 0-02-896090-4 (set)

I have listed the web page addresses of each source.

I hope that this information is of some use to your student.

Yours sincerely,

Harry W. Mazal OBE
