Pierre LEVY

Pierre Lévy was born on February 19, 1924 at the Israelite Health Center in Strasbourg (Bas-Rhin department). His father Armand was a merchant and his mother Georgette née Meyer was a housewife. They resided at n° 22, rue du Vieux-Marché-aux-Vins in Strasbourg.

Before the war he lived with his parents at n° 74 avenue des Vosges in Strasbourg and attended the Lycée Kléber. At the outbreak of World War Two he sought safety in Périgueux (Dordogne department)) at n°26, route de Champcevinel.
In September, 1940 he joined the Maison Hubert, wine and liquor dealers in Périgueux, as a sales representative. In this job he traveled to Vichy (Allier department) and Clermont-Ferrand (Puy-de-Dôme department). In Vichy he stayed at the Central Hôtel. On July 18, 1941 he was ordered to leave town and returned to Périgueux.
He was arrested on July 15, 1944 at Vichy with a false I.D. card bearing the name LEROY. He was transferred the same day from Vichy to Drancy, where he was attributed the I.D. n° 25179, according to Drancy records (AH F/9/5711).
Transferred at the same time was Henri NETTER, also born in Strasbourg (Bas-Rhin) in 1924, also resident on the rue du Vieux-Marché-aux-Vins, and also a refugee in Périgueux. Everything suggests that these two young men were arrested together in the Vichy area.
On July 31, 1944 he was deported from Drancy to Auschwitz in convoy n° 77.

In  Le Mémorial de la Déportation des Juifs de France, Serge Klarsfeld writes about convoy n° 77: “The number of deportees was 1300. This convoy 77 (…) hauled toward the Auschwitz gas chambers more than 300 children under the age of 18. (…) 291 men were selected with I.D. numbers B 3673 to B 3963; the same for 283 women (A 16457 to A 16739). In 1945 there were 209 survivors, 141of whom  were women”.
According to his employer in Périgueux, Pierre LÉVY was crippled by a childhood paralysis and could walk only with a cane. He died on August 5, 1944 at Auschwitz, Poland, according the Strasbourg public records.
Political Deportee Card N° was attributed to him posthumously by a decision of the Veterans and War Victims Ministry on September 8, 1953.
