Summary"The son of an Antwerp diamond merchant, Paul-Henri Rips was ten when the Nazis invaded Belgium and ended his 'golden childhood' forever. Guided by his father’s admonition to 'Sei a mensch' (Be a decent person), Rips managed to hold onto his humanity in the face of unfathomable inhumanity." —Publisher
