the paris hotel that hosted holocaust survivors (presented by louise hidalgo) (in the witness history series)
“At the end of the Second World War the grand Parisian hotel, the Lutetia, was allocated to receive thousands of prisoners and Nazi concentration camp survivors returning home from across a ravaged Europe.
Louise Hidalgo talks to two people for whom the Hotel Lutetia played a crucial role in 1945: • Maurice Cling, author of un enfant á aushcwitz, and • Christiane Umido who, as a young girl, was reunited there with her father. ”
