Marcel Marceau and the French Resistance

Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation

The great French mime Marcel Marceau was the son of a kosher butcher who was murdered at Auschwitz. Following his father’s deportation, Marcel joined the French Resistance, assisting his cousin Georges Loinger in escorting Jewish children from Nazi-occupied France to neutral Switzerland. He used his artistry and charisma to engage with the children and keep them quiet during their long and perilous trek to freedom. Later he gave his first major performance to 3000 US troops after the liberation of Paris in August 1944.
