Interview Summary

Michel Margosis describes his family's escape from his hometown of Brussels, Belgium after the German invasion of Belgium in 1940. After this time his family moved from one place to another: Mons, France; a farm near Toulouse, France; Marseille, France; Barcelona, Spain and the surrounding area; and finally Lisbon, Portugal. Before his parents moved to Lisbon, Margosis explains that he himself was sent to the United States in 1943 as one of what would later be known as the One Thousand Children. His parents, he says, followed in 1946, and his brother and sister did the same in the early 1950s after spending several years in Palestine.
