Resistance: Memoirs of Occupied France

by Agnes Humbert
£8.99   paperback  Bloomsbury (2009)

Resistance: Memoirs of Occupied France by Agnes Humbert In the summer of 1940, as the German Occupation tightened its grip on Paris, Agnès Humbert helped to establish one of the first resistance cells. Within a year the group was publishing a news bulletin, helping allied airmen escape and passing military information back to London. Then came the catastrophe of betrayal, followed by arrest and interrogation, imprisonment and trial and, for Agnès, deportation to slave labour camp in Germany. Résistance is the secret journal of a woman who never gave up hope.

"Agnès Humbert bears devastating witness to her time … An insider’s account of the germination of the French Resistance’ "
(William Boyd)
