The French edition of Victor Baruh's book 'Beyond the Law'

This is the front cover of the French edition of my book ?Beyond the Law?. It is dedicated to the participation of the Jewish Youth in the Resistance. My family and I suffered the consequences of the Law for the Protection of the Nation and my experiences influenced this story. There are a lot of true episodes. For example, there is a description of the demonstration on 24th May 1943 against the internment of Jews from Sofia. I remember that a young man took a flag off a green wooden fence and walked with it at the head of the procession. This scene is in the book. When the writer Dragomir Assenov [pen name of Jacques Nisim Melamed - a well-known Bulgarian writer (1926-1981)] read this in my book, he said: 'That was me'.
