France: in memory of Henri Bek, a Jewish boy suspected during the roundups of July 1942

In July 1942, more than 13,152 Jews were arrested in Paris by the French police at the request of the German authorities. Among them were more than 4,000 children, including Henri Bek. Years later, Henri Bek’s Jewish friend and classmate wrote a book about their childhood friendship, immortalizing his memory and inspiring others to trace the life of a little boy lost in history.
