Narrative: Sophie Orbach was the donor's mother. Sophie Philipson (nee Orbach) left Berlin for Paris with her husband Serge in the 1920s, due to rising antisemitism. On July 15, 1930 their daughter Rachel was born. Serge, Sophie and Rachel were Polish citizen, they never got either the German or the French citizenship. After spending 4 years in the free zone of France, and having found a hiding place, she was denounced along with her mother and her brother. In January 1944, they were arrested and sent to the Drancy transit camp from where they were deported. It is believed they were killed in a Polish killing centre. Her husband Serge survived the war in Ireland where he was managing a factory. Her daughter was able to survive in hiding in different places in the south of France.
