Oral history interview with Anatole Zylberstein

Oral History | Accession Number: 2014.542.40 | RG Number: RG-50.812.0040

Anatole Zylberstein reads from a text presented to him by the filmmaker Gossels, describing memories of children’s behavior at the Chateau de Chabannes, written by his father Zitta, who was a teacher at the Chateau; the fears of the children and the conflicts amongst some children and teachers; the arrival of Philippe Chevrier [probably Felix Chevrier] and the changes he brought to life at the Chateau; his vague recollections of life at Chabannes; the kindness of Philippe Chevrier; the relative contentment in the school; not having contact with the villagers in Chabannes; various people in the Chateau, including Denis [no family name], Norbert [Bikales], Michel Razimofsky [PH], Gérard Glass [PH], and Raya [no family name]; his departure from Chateau along with eight other children circa the end of 1943 and beginning of 1944 by train to Switzerland; the parents and other school personnel fleeing at the same time; being awakened at 3 am and given forged travel documents (his new name was Sicar); being relocated to a school where they integrated quickly; living with a host family (Lacombe); and receiving regular mail from his mother.
