Madame Fourcade FUN FACT #9


Fourcade was arrested twice during the war but escaped both times, once by stripping naked and forcing her slender body through the bars of a Gestapo jail cell in Aix-en-Provence.

This photograph shows the scrapes and bruises Fourcade received from squeezing through a tiny opening in the bars of her cell.

Fun facts taken from Madame Fourcade’s Secret War, on sale now.
