Even though we, the artists, had relative freedom, it was very limited

Memories of his childhood marked by the war

“Those were just great children years, even though being marked by the Second World War, which was quite cruel for our family. My father joined the resistance movement very actively and he got revealed, of course. So one day, I remember it was the October 13, 1944, they searched for him. He managed to hide in some corner of the loft in our house.”
