Otto was reunited with his daughter Lilli after the war

As a child during the war, Lilli was hidden by a non-Jewish family in Dieu Le Fit, in the south of France.  When she was reunited with what was left of her family, she couldn’t communicate with them as she had forgotten how to speak German and only spoke French, while they only spoke German and English.
