French conversations on CD sample: Irene and the holocaust

Irène tells her grandchildren about the yellow star.


When Irène agreed to tell her story for Radio France, she had the good idea of also making it the excuse for telling her grandchildren what happened to her as a young Jewish girl in Nazi-occupied Paris. Here, she tells what happened on the day she had to wear the yellow star to school.

As you'll hear, this interview gains strength from the interplay between Irène and her grandchildren.
