On 15 August 1944, just ten days before Paris was liberated, three remarkable women, listed as American citizens by the Gestapo, were deported from Paris along with dozens of French men and women belonging to the creme de la creme of the French resistance: Toquette Jackson, wife of American doctor Sumner Jackson; Lucienne Dixon, who had worked at the Elizabeth Arden salon; and Virginia d'Albert-Lake, a 24-year-old from Dayton, Ohio. All three had risked everything to defeat Nazism. All three would help each other survive the unimaginable hell of Hitler's concentration camps as the Third Reich collapsed around them.

The lecture will be given by Alex Kershaw. This program is co-sponsored by French and Francophone Studies.
