B&W portrait with white border. Portrait of David Kropveld as a boy, wearing a suit and tie. Narrative: Portrait of the donor, David Kropveld. David Kropveld was born on January 3, 1918 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. David took up boxing as a young man and participated in competitions. In July 1940, David and his father joined the White Brigade resistance group in the south of France, passing as non-Jews. In October 1942, David was arrested while smuggling war-related information between occupied and Vichy France. He was tortured for ten days before being released. He was reunited with his father in Brussels, but the two were arrested by Gestapo officers one week later. They were incarcerated for three months and deported to Auschwitz concentration camp. Father and son wore the badges of political prisoners and were selected for the slave labour camp of Monowitz, where they stayed for about five days prior to being transferred to Treblinka. In Treblinka, David witnessed his father’s murder at the hands of a guard. In the fall of 1944, a guard recognized David as a boxer he had admired and had him transferred back to Auschwitz and Monowitz in December 1944 to compete boxing matches against other prisoners. In December 1944, David managed to escape the death march with a few iother prisoners. He was rescued shortly after and brought to a hospital until his health improved. No members of his family survived the war. In the summer of 1945, David met his wife. In 1947, the couple emigrated to Cuba, and in 1950, to Montreal where David began a successful career as a butcher.

Notes
David Dawidovicz was born on July 17, 1924 in Lodz, Poland. Soon after, his family moved to Tel-Aviv, Israel, where they stayed until 1931. At that point, they moved to Paris because of endemic poverty in Tel-Aviv. After four years in France, David, his mother and two of his sisters were expelled from France because they were illegal immigrants, unlike David’s father. David remembers the train journey through Germany, seeing lots of swastikas on buildings and on uniforms. He and his relatives spent six months in Lodz. There, David realized that Jews in Poland weren’t as emancipated as Jews in France. Back to France, David attended school until the war began. In 1941 and 1942, he witnessed several roundups. During the Vel d’Hiv roundup of July 1942, he hid in a small apartment with other people. They were able to hide thanks to French policemen who used to warn Jews. David hid for several weeks. He was eventually arrested in August 1942 by French policemen who took him to the offices of the UJF (Union des Juifs français). This organization gave money to the French police to send Jews to work in the Ardennes (a French region) instead of deporting them to Poland. David worked there until January 1944, at which point he decided to escape and join the resistance. He partook in the liberation of Paris. After the war, David took part in a program to de-Nazify the German youth. He lives in Paris to this day.
