Tillion, Germaine. Ravensbrück. Paris: Seuil, 1973.

Germaine Tillion, a French ethnologist, soon engaged in the Resistance after the armistice. She became one of the main leaders of the “Musée de l’homme” network, and was arrested and sent to Ravensbrück, the only all-female German concentration camp. After her liberation and the end of the war, she worked on researching and documenting the Nazi concentration universe and the psychology of the camps. This book combines eyewitness testimony with historical analysis.

Miribel, Elisabeth de. La liberté souffre violence. Paris: Plon, 1981.

Élisabeth de Miribel came from a family of strong Catholic tradition. At the beginning of World War II, she volunteered to help the French Foreign Ministry with its ”economic war,” and was sent to London. After the French armistice with Germany, she decided not to return to France. In London, she was asked to type Charles de Gaulle’s celebrated June 18, 1940 speech asking the French people to resist, and subsequently became his personal secretary. In 1942, she was sent to Quebec to rally Canadians to the French cause and raise funds.
