Contemporary history of Luxembourg

Ida PRISANT (1900-1966), Nathan GODIN (1891-1949)

Both born of Russian nationality, but she in present-day Poland and he in Belarus, Ida and Nathan arrived separately in Luxembourg in the late 1910s, married and had five sons. From 1922 on, they were itinerant merchants selling knitted and crocheted goods on the markets and lived in Esch-sur-Alzette and then Luxembourg-City. During the war, they lived in exile, hidden in Brussels, and, like their children, they survived. They returned to Esch, where they opened a store at 110 rue du Nord and then at 114 rue de l'Alzette.
