Tinker Posted March 5, 2011 Share Posted March 5, 2011 I think there used to be a thread where members could post the book they were currently reading or that they had just read. I am always interested in recommendations for good reading so I am setting up a new thread. I'll start it off, I hope others will add books as they read them. I am currently nearing the end of Résistance – A Woman’s Journal of Struggle and Defiance in Occupied France, by Agnès Humbert translation by Barbara Mellor. Agnès Humbert is a real life woman who died in France in 1963. Agnes, a French art historian before the war, formed a group within the French Resistance during the Nazi occupation of France. The group was eventually caught by the Gestapo and several of the men in the group were executed. Agnes and others were sent to Germany to serve as slave labor. This is the journal Agnès kept throughout her experience as a Resistance fighter and during her time spent in slave labor.
