    Fanny Flam was born Fanny Herman in Anderlecht, Belgium, on January 28, 1931, to Itzhack (Jacques) and Gittle (Giselle) Zysman. During the Nazi occupation of Belgium, Fanny, her parents, and her two older brothers, Marcel and Paul, escaped to Mandelieu-la-Napoule in the south of France and remained together in hiding. When French police arrested Jacques and Giselle Zysman in 1943, their children devised a plan to escape to Switzerland.
