Two French Resistances fighters with capture German weapons fighting German forces in Paris, French, August 1944. The German garrison in Pairs will surrender on August 25, 1944.

Team France portait n.4: Germaine Tillion (1907-2008), freedom fighter in the French resistance during World War II. The woman I admire most in French history. She joined the resistance as soon as the nazis set foot in France. She was betrayed in 42 and was sent with her mom at Ravensbrueck. She was an ethnologist and gave detailed account of life in the camp. Also she played a rather positive role in the war for Algeria's independence denouncing abuse by French forces and working for peace. (ref pic: photo)

I started a new series of 20 portraits of French men&women. They're based on their Wikipedia or Britannica portrait (when not photography, a painting, drawing, sculpture or engraving, preferably executed from their likeness). My goal is to work on cartoonish/simpler lineart, begin using ink pen and work on clean colorex ink coloring. The ref pics are mostly awesome work of art I hope I did not disfigure too much.

#wcw Josephine Baker. She was a total bad ass, in wwii she was an exotic dancer and relayed information from German officers to the french resistance. Not only that she would hang out with Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Picasso! Also she was a massive civil rights supporter who spoke at the March on Washington in 1963. She adopted 12 kids and raised them in a fucking castle! #womenarebadass #frenchresistance #wwii

Noor Inayat Khan was born on New Year's Day 1914 in Moscow to an Indian father and an American mother. She was a direct descendant of Tipu Sultan, the 18th century Muslim ruler of Mysore. Khan's father was a musician and Sufi teacher.

Raised in Britain and France and a descendant of Indian royalty, bilingual Noor Inayat Khan was recruited by the elite Special Operations Executive (SOE) in 1942 to work in Paris as a radio operator.

Records from the national archives show she was the first female wireless operator sent to Nazi-occupied France during World War II.

After evading capture for three months, the spy was imprisoned, tortured and eventually shot by the German Gestapo at Dachau concentration camp in 1944.

Her final word - uttered as the German firing squad raised their weapons - was simple. "Liberte". # Noor Inayat Khan #liberte

When you turn up to work dressed like The French Resistance from ‘Allo ‘Allo #frenchresistance #alloallo #beret #beretgood #accidentlydressingliketv

Feb 17/18th: Two Pioneers for Racial Equality before their time and each in their own way, Bessie Smith and Josephine Baker destroyed the images shrouded around the black American Woman of their day. With Bessie becoming the highest paid black entertainer and at one point the highest paid woman in jazz. Josephine Baker’s many stands from refusing segregated shows, being apart of the #FrenchResistance , and her close ties with Dr. Martin Luther King’s family among her numerous feats for black equality and are two female entertainers who changed the game then and are still relevant today!

The French Resistance played a key role in the invasion of Normandy. The United States, Great Britain, and Canada relied on the Axis occupied French citizens to provide intelligence in order to achieve success in the biggest invasion in history, D-Day. The French sabotaged the Germans as well as tested the sand on the 5 beaches to determine the wake of the water.

Pass the coffee, please 😴Stayed up late last night finishing Résistance by Agnes Humbert. I posted about it a few months back when I was only a chapter or two in, and then life took over and it got ignored for a while. I am so glad I didn't return it to the library without finishing it! This is one of those books that you ponder for a long time. I cannot get over what an incredibly strong and resourceful woman Humbert was. The atrocities she suffered as a political prisoner in forced labor were so horrendous that I gasped out loud several times. I also laughed a number of times, as throughout it all she didn't lose her dry sense of humor. After being freed by the Americans, she worked with them and used her #femininegenius to restore order in newly occupied Germany, identify and trap war criminals. Highly recommend (although now I need a literary palate cleanser so I'm opting for the next #44scotlandstreet book by #alexandermccallsmith). #wellreadcatholic #bookstagram #frenchresistance #wwii #femalesarestrongashell

This is a memorial to the war dead and to the victims of the concentration camps on Rue Larcher in Bayeux. Very poignant. There is a poem by Louis Aragon inscribed in the center. He took part in the French Resistance.

Hommage à la résistance française.
Ces hommes sont des héros qui se sont levés contre les nazis.
Arrivés le 8.7.1942, ils ont tenus en moyenne 1 mois, les plus forts eux ont survécus jusqu'à la fin de l'année 42, un peu moins de 5 mois.
Plus de 40.000 photos ont été retrouvées à la libération du camp par les Soviétiques.

"Le mot résister doit toujours se conjuger au présent"
Lucie Aubrac, célèbre résistante française. Parmi de nombreuses actions de résistance, elle a notamment fait évader son mari, Raymond Aubrac, et 13 autres résistants.
Les résistants de la France Libre ont rétabli l'honneur de la France taché par le régime de Vichy, les lois antisémites, le fichier juif, les arrestations de la gendarmerie et des policiers au Vél' d'Hiv' et partout en France, les déportations de 75 721 Juifs déportés vers Auschwitz, Sobibor, Bergen-
Belsen ou les forts de Kaunas et de Klaïpeda.
