--“ Le Memorial des Enfants Juif Deportes de France”--
(Serge Klarsfeld, ed.)

In general, it has been noted that, in some cases, Yiddish names were used for children born in Poland (when they were known), and French names for children born in France (if available on various documents).  If only the birth year was known, a birth date of January 1 of the year indicated was used.

Places of Birth: “The majority of foreign-born Jews who lived in France came from Poland; but the rest came from countries throughout the world….”
