Marie and Jeannette, sisters from Antwerp, Belgium, were just nine and five years old when they began a life on the run from the Nazis in 1940. The young girls hid in France until caught by the Nazis and put into a deportation camp. With the help of the underground they were smuggled out of the camp and taken to a safe hiding place. Eventually they escaped, without their mother, across the mountains to Barcelona, Spain. In 1944 they journeyed to the United States and were placed in an orphanage until a foster home could be found for them in Rhode Island - becoming the state’s first refugee children from the Holocaust.
