David Bergman, the son of assimilated Polish immigrants, was born and raised in Paris. His father, who enlisted in the French army, corresponded with his son from the Vichy region during the Nazi occupation. On July 16th, 1942, following their betrayal by an informant, the Bergman's flat was broken into by the Gestapo and the French police. David fled to the roof, but on his return he discovered that his mother had been taken, and that the informant's husband was stealing the Bergman's belongings. The eleven-year-old boy wandered from one hiding place to another, at times assuming a false identity. In 1943, David crossed the Swiss border, and in May 1945, he immigrated to Eretz Israel.
