Born May 29, 1917, Elie de Rothschild was captured by the Germans near the border with Belgium. He wound up at Luebeck, one of the Nazis' most infamous POW camps.
There, he was reunited with a brother, Alain, and although they were Jews, they were treated as captured officers and avoided execution.
