The Joseph family was sent to Bergen-Belsen as Salvadoran citizens. They were then released in January 1945 as part of a prisoner swap of approximately 150 foreign nationals. They were sent to Switzerland and then to the Jeanne D'Arc camp in Phillippeville, Algeria where they survived the last months of the war.
