Aunt Yvonne's Capture
Deportation to Auschwitz
"...she was on one of the caravan trains that took them all..."
"She was captured in Cavalaire and taken to Marseilles or Toulon—which are the two cities that are right on the coast there, In 1944, June, she was taken to Drancy, which is a suburb of Paris on the North, basically the North side of Paris. And she stayed there for a couple of months, and then eventually about July or June 30th or something of 1944, she was on one of the caravan trains that took them all to Auschwitz, and you’ve probably talked to people who’ve been on those trains, so she was on there and she got to Auschwitz about six days later."
