COMPLETED Search : Bernard (Berco) ITICOVICI

We were NO LONGER searching for any information about Bernard (Berco) Iticovici or his relatives.

Bernard (Berco) Iticovici was a French POW at Stalag VIII A, Gorlitz, Germany in 1941.

He was a Romanian Jew who lived in Paris in the 1930’s.


He was inducted into the French Army in 1940 and in June 1940 was captured during the Battle for France and
sent as a French POW to Stalag V III A at Gorlitz, in Germany.  Bernard was at the Stalag in 1941 as prisoner # 29347. 
It is possible that Bernard was present at Messaien’s first performance of his “Quartet for the End of Time” at
Stalag VIIIA on a cold January day in 1941.


The archives at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC contain a German deportation list showing that two men with
the surname Iticovici were deported from Paris to Auschwitz in 1942. 
Itic Iticovici, born in Iasi, Romania, in 1905, and
Joseph Iticovici who was listed as a French national  
It is possible that these victims may have been relatives of Bernard.


We seek anyone who many know the fate of Bernard in the camp and after the war, or may know of any relatives
of his that have survived
