French Resistance Leader Raymond Aubrac Dies at 97

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Raymond Aubrac, whose parents were sent to Auschwitz, and his wife, were the most celebrated couple of the French resistance, fierce underground fighters against German occupation. Aubrac’s pregnant wife Lucie famously led a daring commando raid to rescue him from the Nazis.

AFP reports that President Nicolas Sarkozy paid homage to “a heroic Resistance figure” whose “escape, thanks to the bravery of his wife Lucie Aubrac, has entered into the legend of the history of the Resistance.”
