Christophe and her mother were brought to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp when she was a young girl, and her mother had two small pieces of chocolate with her. She told Christophe that she would give her a piece when she felt the most hopeless.

One day, a prisoner named Helene suddenly went into labor. Christophe’s mother asked her, if she would mind sharing her piece of chocolate with Helene. “She may die. If I give her the chocolate, it may help her,” Christophe says her mother told her.

She agreed and gave Helene the chocolate. Six months later, they would be freed from the camp.

Years later, her daughter asked her to give a lecture on how survivors would have coped differently if they had counsellors in their recovery.

During her speech, a woman walked up to the podium saying she was a psychiatrist living in Marseille, France and had something to give to Christophe on stage…

The woman came up and placed a piece of chocolate in Christophe’s hand and said, “I am the baby.”
