About the transmission of an inheritance within a family,
Not the transmission of material riches but the way in which
the life of a parent can determine in their children
choices which influence the construction of identity.
The story of this inheritance is built around the following elements :
My father was an exile of Jewish origin, forced in 1938 to flee his country,
leaving behind his family and his plans to become a doctor.
He took refuge in France, met my mother and
chose to fight in the Resistance.
He went on to practice a sort of pioneering, social medicine
as an initiator into natural childbirth in the South of France.
