Joseph Joffo's childhood came to an end at the age of 10, when his father gave him and his brother 5,000 francs each and instructions to flee Paris and escape the Nazis. The boys were told they must never let anyone know they were Jews as they went on the run -- by foot, train and ferry -- from Hitler's feared SS secret police in occupied France. Joffo's 1973 autobiographical novel "A Bag of Marbles" recounted their incredible journey, their capture and subsequent escape, and became a global phenomenon, made into a film and a graphic novel.

Late Thursday night Los Angeles time, Sony reported revenue of $17 billion and earnings of 19 cents a share for the three months ended March 31, which the company classifies as its fiscal fourth quarter. While the company attributed much of the revenue shortfall to unfavorable foreign exchange rates, Sony also took a $962 million writedown in goodwill in January related to its film division, reducing future profitability estimates — which was the main reason behind its weak full-year earnings per share number.
