World War II French Displaced Children: Short Accounts

Figure 1.--

HBC has noted a variety of short accounts about dispalced French children during World War II.

A French reader reports a member of his family was sent for several months to Switzerland.

Another boy age 5-6 years old was send to a catholic school run by nuns in Bretagne. He is not sure how long he stayed. My brother reminded me that during a official tour by my uncle in France about 1950 that we had visited this institution called "Landeda" but I don't realy remenber and it was not written on his day-book. At this time my uncle was for a time " ommissaire au plan" (government auditor).
