Mr Rothschild, born 1930 in Hamburg, emigrated with his parents to Antwerp. In 1940 all Jews there were forced to leave their flats, and Mr Rothschild went to Loewen, where he attended school until spring 1942.

When the Association Des Juifs De Belgique distributed the socalled “Labour Demand Notes“to the Jews, Mr Rothschild's mother, two brothers and several other relatives reported for work. They were deported and all of them perished. Mr Rothschild, with his Jewish nurse, went to an aunt, who managed to obtain a Haitian passport and pretended that Mr Rothschild was her child. They reported for internment in a camp for enemy aliens, and in June 1944 they were taken to Vittel near Nancy where they stayed until liberation.

Mr Rothschild's father had been interned first in St. Cyprien, then in Gurs, and from 1941 until 1944 he worked in the so-called “Groupement de Travailleurs Etrangers“.
