Document | Accession Number: 2011.369.1

Consists of copies of two letters, in English. Dr. René Bine, Jr wrote the first letter to his parents, René Bine, Sr., MD and Alma Bine, in San Francisco after visiting his relative, Yvette Baumann Bernard Farnoux, and her family in Paris in September 1945. In the letter, he describes Yvette's experiences as a high-ranking member of the French Resistance, her activities in the French underground, her arrest, and her experiences in Auschwitz, Ravensbrück, and a forced labor camp near Dresden. She was given the rank of Captain in the Reserves as an honor after her return from the camps. Yvette's mother, Lilice Baumann, wrote the second letter to René and Alma Bine on May 29/30, 1945. The letter informs them of Yvette’s survival and upcoming return to Paris with her sister-in-law.
