Joseph Weismann is one of the surviving children that were deported from the camp of Beaune-la-Rolande to Auschwitz after the Vel d'Hiv roundup.

His sisters Charlotte (13 in 1942) and Rachel (7 in 1942), as well as his parents, were deported to Auschwitz and murdered.

In 1996, Simone Veil convinced him to write his memoirs.

He received the Escapees' Medal in 1972.
