Description: After we located the grave of Henri, my mother's French penpal in Israel's national military cemetery, it took a lot of detective work to dig up facts about his life before and after the Holocaust.  A letter from my mother was in the pocket of his uniform when he was killed in Israel's war of independence, leading us to believe he was the sole survivor of his family.
