Descandants read from grandfather’s book “Men in Zebra” at the memorial site of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp
From early 1942 until 1945 our grandfather Jan Lemaire was imprisoned in Sachsenhausen. On the 7 May 1945, after the Death March, Jan was liberated at Schwerin. He wrote his book in two weeks without any chapters. When we were 15, our grandmother gave us his book, remarking: “If you feel old enough you should do something with it.” And now we are here.
