Chess board used by the youth Issachar Parkiet and his family in their hideout

In the summer of 1942, Joseph Parkiet was warned by an acquaintance that the next day a massive roundup of Jews was scheduled to take place throughout Paris, and advising him to go into hiding. He quickly hid with his wife and children in the family workshop, moving the following day to a friend's workshop located in a courtyard, where they remained for over two years until the end of the war.
