I am now back from France after a brisk 1400 km drive yesterday, and processing 
the many images. This one is a kind of retroactive PAD, since it was taken on 
the 17th, and I have already posted the 18th. It is a portrait of my uncle 
Joseph in his office at his house. This is where he prepares his many speeches 
about his experiences during the roundup of French Jews, and when he was still 
active in business, this was the heart of what I jokingly called his empire. 
Today, it is decorated with what is important to him: his family most of all 
(including photos taken by me, something that gives me great pleasure), but 
also clippings of meetings with various dignitaries, including French Prime 
Ministers and Presidents. I made several attempts at a portrait in his office, 
many unsuccessful—not because he does not cooperate, he does, but because he 
has a tendency to close his eyes at inopportune moments. But this one worked:


The Stars and Stripes on his desk reflects his life-long gratitude to and love 
of the United States. He has never forgotten the day in 1944 when the village 
in which he was hiding from the Nazis was liberated by US troops.
