    Biography The fate of most of the Jews resembled that of George Ascoli, a professor at the Sorbonne who won five medals in World War I, commanded a battalion in 1940, and was a prisoner of war in Nazi Germany. Upon his return to Paris, however, he learned that he had been relieved of all his duties

    Larry Ascoli claims that...Georg (Sorbonne) Ascoli and his son Rene (Rene was never deported) perished during the Second World War. George was a professor at the Sorbonne and a member of the Academie Francaise. He used to come and visit us in Belgium.

    Citation à l'ordre de la Division le 4 mai 1915:

    "ASCOLI Georges. - Lieutenant au 312°
    Blessé à son poste de commandement dans une tranchée en voulant assurer la surveilance de sa troupe pendant un bombardement, Commandant de compagnie, d'un dévouement sans bornes, courageux, très énergique"

    Abstract A biography of Ascoli who was a professor of literature at the Sorbonne. At the beginning of World War II, Ascoli served as an officer in the
    French army. In September 1940, he was taken by the Nazis to a POW camp
    (Oflag) in Nuremberg. There, someone denounced him as a Jew and he was transferred to a special section for Jews.
    In August 1941 he was repatriated to France, but could no longer teach at the University. Ascoli and his wife lived in Sevres, near Paris; they did not leave their home, considering that they were safe there.
    On 19 February 1944 they were arrested by the Gestapo, interned in Drancy, and deported to Auschwitz, where they were killed in March 1944.
    Pp.53-86 contain photographs and appendixes.
