Oral history interviews with Madame Du Petit Magneux and Madame de Magnion

Oral History | Accession Number: 2014.542.21 | RG Number: RG-50.812.0021

Madame de Magnion, with relatively few recollections of the Jewish children of Chabannes, discusses her specific hardships; the constant fear; the need to show papers to police constantly; the shortages of food; and her role in the Chabannes school kitchen.
Madame Du Petit Magneux (84 years old), a farmer from Fursac, discusses the Jewish refugees; supplying milk to the chateau; the children who visited her to collect milk from her farm; sheltering a Chabannes child named Boris and his return to see her after the war; other Jewish children who stayed for short periods on her farm; and her decision to shelter the children because she understood their fear and could relate to them over the loss of their parents as she had lost her father when she was a child.

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.
