Last Name:



Lucien Berkowicz was born in Paris on April 21, 1935, to Tauba (née Burstein) and Mayer Berkowicz. His younger brother, René, was born a year and a half later. Tauba left Poland because of her political activities and arrived in Paris to join her older brother, Eli, who had left Poland several years earlier to avoid joining the Polish army. Mayer left Poland for the same reason as Eli. He had the opportunity to sail on a merchant ship to Le Havre where he left the ship. He lived for several years illegally in France, learned French, and was then permitted to stay in France. He was a carpenter trained at an Obshchestvo Remeslennogo Truda (ORT) school in Poland and eventually had his own shop in Paris. When World War II broke out the family lived at 68 rue de Charenton in a two-room apartment. Read more about Lucien Berkowicz.
