Andrée Salomon, a woman of enlightenment - Georges Weill and Katy Hazan
Andrée Salomon (1908-1985) was one of the great figures in the Jewish Resistance in France. She was responsible for social welfare in the OSE. She organized the saving of children from the internment camps in the southern zone, who were placed in the houses of the OSE, then kept in hiding with false identities to enable them to evade deportation.
This work reconstitutes her testimony from the manuscript of her memoirs several interviews she gave and the unpublished memories of her closest assistants. There are also about 40 letters of gratitude from all over the world.
It is a tribute to this woman of enlightenment whose generosity and heroism enabled a whole generation of children and adults threatened with death to build themselves a new future.
