New Testament given to hidden child who converted to the Christian faith

Publication | Accession Number: 2003.20.2

New Testament given to Flora Hillel by her adoptive family, the Hogmans, on the occasion of her baptism into the Protestant Church in Cannes, France, on May 13, 1951. Flora was seven in June 1942 when her mother, Stephanie, put her in the Maison d'accueil in Venice, Italy. In 1943, Stephanie took Flora out of the Maison d'accueil and placed her in a convent run by the Poor Clares (Ordre de Saint Claire) in Nice, France. Later that year, Stephanie was captured and sent to Drancy transit camp in France. She next was deported to Auschwitz concentration camp and killed in October 1943. Flora was moved from the convent to several different hiding places. When the war ended in France in late 1944, she was living with the Hogman family. When her mother never returned, the family decided to adopt Flora.
