Summary In the autumn of 1943, André Boulloche became de Gaulle's military delegate in Paris, coordinating all the Resistance movements in the nine northern regions of France only to be betrayed by one of his associates, arrested, wounded by the Gestapo, and taken prisoner. His sisters carried on the fight without him until the end of the war. Boulloche survived three concentration camps and later became a prominent French politician who devoted the rest of his life to reconciliation of France and Germany. This is the first time the family has cooperated to recount their extraordinary ordeal.
