My mother and I spend 7 days in the Velodrome on July 16, we were realized after spending 6 miserable days. My father at this time was working for a small company the owner knew some important Nazis money was exchanged and we where free. 3 weeks later they came to the house and arrested my parents and I, while walking in the street my father dropped the suitcases in from of the gendarms and my mother yelled "Run" and I ran for 3 years until they came back after spending 3 years in various concentration camps.
