Max was born in Antwerp, Belgium in 1930. When the Germans invaded ten years later, the family fled, taking refuge in a series of internment camps in Southern France. When his father and brother were sent to a work camp,
young Max was sent to a series of orphanages and ultimately was placed on a remote farm in the French Alps, posing as a Catholic orphan. Max’s father did not survive, but he was reunited with his brother and mother after the war.
Max immigrated to the U.S. in 1948.
