Leon and his family were living in the town of Compiègne, occupied France, when the French police came for his parents. Leon was four and his older sister Rachel was ten. The downstairs neighbors told Leon's parents and the police that they would look after the children until the parents were released. They never returned.

In his left hand a portrait of his parents, last seen being taken away by the French police in 1942, and in his right, his second parents, who took in Leon and his sister on that day, instead of letting the police take them away as well.
