"Between her date of birth, on the 2nd of July 1901, and her deportation to Auschwitz, on the 18th of July 1943, in a wagon train leaving from Drancy, Odette Bernstein's life left few traces, except those found in the administrative archives. This young and independent woman, from a well-off family of Neuilly-sur-Seine, was the filmmaker's great aunt. Before World War II, she created her own hatmaking business, and changed name at the same time, becoming Fanny Berger. She set up [a shop on] rue Balzac, near the Champs Elysées. German occupation didn't stop immediately her booming business, but anti-Jewish laws from Vichy government would quickly get hold of it. The noose tightened around her: contacts with her clients were forbidden as well as the opening of a bank account, obligation to get her name registered and to hold the yellow star ... until Fanny Berger tried to escape to reach the free zone, got caught and was interned in Drancy camp. In the meantime, French administration managed to make 'Aryan' most Jewish firms, and Fanny Berger's hatmaking business was sold, supervised by a temporary administrator. In 1942, Fanny Berger found herself with no home, no business and no rights."--Dissidenz International.
