Sisters in Resistance [videorecording]

a film by Maia Wechsler
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
"This compelling documentary shares the story of four French women of uncommon courage who, in their teens and twenties, risked their lives to fight the Nazi occupation of their country. Neither Jews nor Communists, they were in no danger of arrest before they joined the Resistance. Within two years all four were arrested by the Gestapo and deported as political prisoners to the hell of Ravensbruck concentration camp. Today, elderly but still very active, they continue to push forward as social activists and intellectual leaders in their fields. The film captures their amazing lives, and reveals an uncommon, intense bond of friendship that survives to this day"--Container. The women went on to form the Association of Women Deportees and Prisoners of the Resistance. They have been recognized as French heroines.
