Codename Suzette

Interesting and new from our highly readable non-fiction range that is popular to accompany you on the holidays that loom on the horizon! Sub-titled ‘An Extraordinary Story of Resistance and Rescue in Nazi Paris’ and this sums it up well.
“Suzanne Spaak was born into an affluent Belgian Catholic family and married into a powerful political dynasty. In Occupied Paris, she moved among the cultural elite and yet, she lived a double life. Her friendship with a Polish Jewish refugee led to a life of purpose and rescue. When France fell and the Nazis occupied Paris, Suzanne joined the Resistance movement. She used her fortune and social status to enlist allies among the wealthy Parisians and church groups. Under the watchful eyes of the Gestapo, Suzanne and others rescued hundreds of Jewish children from the horrors of the gas chambers and camps”
A truly inspiring, courageous story set in a time of mistrust, fear and persecution.
