Eyewitness to History: Albert Garih

Albert Garih was born in Paris, France, in 1938. When the Nazis arrested Albert’s father and sent him to a forced labor camp in the German-occupied Channel Islands, the rest of the Garih family went into hiding. Albert, his mother, and his two older sisters first hid with the Galop family before threats of denunciation forced them to find other places to avoid detection.
