Hélène Berr, A Stolen Life

Another great art opening from our friends at Alliance Francaise. Its FREE, just register at the link in the post. 

Exposition from Mémorial de la Shoah, Paris France

From April 1942 to February 1944, Hélène Berr kept a diary on a daily basis which combines the everyday experience of the unbearable and the dream world of literature, before her deportation in March 1944. This document, of an exceptional quality, gives a unique image of a young French girl brutally cast away from society during the German occupation in Paris.

Register for this Free Opening event here.

You can park in Colony Square parking and get validated parking at the event.

A Train in Winter: An Extraordinary Story of Women, Friendship, and Resistance in Occupied France
by Caroline Moorehead
In January 1943, 230 women of the French Resistance were sent to the death camps by the Nazis who had invaded and occupied their country. This is their story, told in full for the first time—a searing and unforgettable chronicle of terror, courage, defiance, survival, and the power of friendship. Caroline Moorehead, a distinguished biographer, human rights journalist,  brings to life an extraordinary story that readers of Mitchell Zuckoff’s Lost in Shangri-La, Erik Larson’s In the Garden of Beasts, and Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken will find an essential addition to our retelling of the history of World War II—a riveting, rediscovered story of courageous women who sacrificed everything to combat the march of evil across the world.
