Humanitarian or religiously based compassion that manifested itself in deeds could fall under "activities that endanger the state," aiding escape was "favoring the enemy," and fighting with the word was "treason." This was how the German and French repressive apparatuses viewed women's activities in the Résistance. This book demonstrates the areas of women's involvement and their key role in the resistance. It draws on a wealth of previously unexplored sources in France and Germany and also explores the question of what motivations women had for their involvement in the Résistance. It also makes clear the high risks to life and limb they took in the process.
