(as told by his niece, Renate Rosenblatt)
My uncle Boruch, went to Vienna with his parents and his older brothers Jakob, Chune and his sister Berta between 1918 and 1920. About 10 years later he went to France.
|As he was still very young, people tried to stop him. In Vienna he
had a professional training for goldsmith.
He married in Paris November 24th 1939. He had an atelier of his own.He joined the French army and later he was hidden from the Germans. During the war he was hidden by his wife. He worked in bad conditions in someone else's atelier. A piece of melted platinum came in his eye. As he could not get medical care his eye burned away. He suffered for that the rest of his life.

Their only child, born shortly after the war, died as a baby.
He became a well-known and respected designer of jewelry.
