As Jewish refugees from Egypt we were lodged in a monastery, at Notre-Dame-de-l'Osier, near Grenoble, in France (January 1957). Victor Teboul, Private Collection.

When Victor Teboul was a young boy, he began writing a diary. The time was 1956 when England, Israel and France began the protracted conflict against Egypt over the Suez Canal. At the age of 11, he witnessed his father being shut away in jail and the subsequent expulsion of his family, along with thousands of other Jewish families.
Still, he kept on writing in his diary. He stopped at the age of 18 when he came to Montreal.
