Famous folks from Cambridge
Margret and H.A. Rey
The couple behind '"Curious George'' escaped Nazi-occupied France on a pair of cobbled-together bikes. They carried with them the manuscript that later evolved into the iconic children's book character.
Both German Jews, the Reys made it to Orleans, and then a train took them to Spain and Portugal, where they boarded a ship to the United States.
They initially moved to New York but then moved to Cambridge.
