Ils partiront dans l'ivresse

Ined the Resistance Movement in opposition to the Nazis and their collaborators Outwitting the Gestapo is Lucie's harrowing account of her participation in the Resistance of the months when though pregnant she planned and took part in raids. I found this book uite remarkable for the ordinariness of courage on the part of a woman who is superficially conventional in every way she s a French Roman Catholic happily married with a child she adores She describes in an understated self deprecating way her role in the Resistance walking into a prison to try to get a comrade out in broad daylight befriending an SS officer taking part in an armed raid in the streets to rescue another resistance member a Sten submachine gun across her knees as she waits to spring the ambush At any moment she can expect to be betrayed shot down or arrested and tortured to death The knock on the door could come at any time The tone is flat the very antithesis of dramatic She survives remarkably So does her husband a senior figure in the Resistance along with their son The reader asks one uestion throughout over and over would I have the guts the self discipline and conviction to do this Very few of us would I suspect

Lucie Aubrac ↠ 1 CHARACTERS

To free comrades including her husband under Nazi death sentence from the prisons of Klaus Barbie the infamous Butcher of Lyon Her book is also the basis for the 1997 French movie Lucie Aubrac which was released in the United States in 199. The story of Lucie Aubrac and how she was able to spring her husband from the clutches of the Gestapo in wartime Lyon is well known via the 1990s film This memoir was written after the war since it was too dangerous for Resistance members to keep a diary I found it fascinating not only because real life stories are often outlandish than fiction but also because it provides details of daily life in occupied France The fact that it was written after the events described does make me wonder if there was a certain amount of post hoc rationalisation going on And the real history of that period has sometimes been obscured by the post war myths that grew up around the Resistance At times I found the narrative confusing and had to keep looking at the date to see where we were But overall I found this book a valuable piece in the jumbled mosaic of which the history of the French Resistance is composed I read the English edition and I would like to read it again in the original French

    This memoir of the French Resistance is a good reminder of the bravery that people of principle can show even in the darkest of times It is humbling to think about considering how easy it is to accommodate In Lucie Aubrac's

    A good book about war shows the savagery and mindlessness of warfare Lucie Aubrac's book does that The book takes place in France during 1943 when Lucie despite being pregnant was trying to get her husband out of a German run prison in Lyon She was helped by many people in the French resistance but it was her daring in approaching Nazis lik

    uite frankly Yes this blew my mind and I want to shout at everyone I know to READ THIS or listen as I did; the narration is sublime It's a must read book It's old but I was looking about something on Lyon France where I studied abroad during law school and incidentally learned some about the resistance It always has amazed me that a popular historical novel about Lyon during WWII doesn't exist in English tha
