Raphaël BENDERSKI

1938-1944 | Birth: | Arrest: |
Benderski Raphaël

Raphaël Benderski was one of the children arrested at the Zysmann boarding house in La Varenne-St-Hilaire (Val-de-Marne department) and deported in convoy 77 at the end of July, 1944.

What is known of him consists in:

A few bits of information and a photo in the Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris

The book “Les orphelins de La Varenne”, which is easily found on Amazon

His birth certificate, containing information about his parents states that his father Borys was born in 1910 in Odessa, Poland (sic), and that his mother Natalia, née Laiman, was born at Rakitna Szlacheckie in Silesia (now Polish) in 1903.  Research on the Internet yields Odessa, Ukraine as Borys’s birthplace and Roktne, Ukraine for Natalia, whose maiden name is given as Lehmann.

On the site of the AJPN (Anonymes, Justes et persécutés durant la période Nazi) under the heading “Maison des orphelins de La Varenne”, is found the following entry: “July 22, 1944 Benderski family – Raphaël, born on June 5, 1938 in Nancy, was placed in the La Varenne orphanage after the arrest of his parents, Boris and Nathalie, who were deported in convoy n° 47 on February 11, 1943 and never returned.

Arrested as a Jew, Raphaël was interned at the age of 6 at Drancy and deported to Auschwitz in convoy n° 77, composed of 1300 people, 325 of which were children. He did not come back.

Similar information can be found on the site of Yad Vashem.

    La transcription de l’acte de décès mentionne que le dernier domicile connu est à Berthegon (Vienne) et que l’acte de décès doit être transcrit sur les registres de cette commune (et Nancy, en marge) (23 mai 1991) (21 P 423 402, Caen).

    selon la demande de régularisation de disparation remplie par son neveu (sans doute neveu d’un des parents) Bernard LAJMAN demeurant à Metz (en aout 1950), “habitait avec ses parents à Chaterlerault Pris au camp de Poitiers. Libéré du cap puis confié au Docteur Gendhler.
    Puis repris et envoyé au camp des enfants à Louveciennes près de Paris et de là déporté en juillet 1944”.
