L'histoire

Before the war Arthur Levy lived in Strasbourg, Alsace. When the Germans invaded France, they annexed the area of Alsace to Germany and all the non- Germans, including Jews, were expelled. According to the information given to Yad Vashem by Ernestine Levy, her husband was hidden by the August and Suzanne Steinmetz during November and December 1942. On 4 March 1985 Yad Vashem recognized August and Suzanne Steinmetz as Righteous Among the Nations. When they were notified by the Israeli embassy in France, they refused to accept the award.
