"It is important that people know that Jews have fought,
That Jews have not just been captured and put in camps and killed in camps.
Many Jews have fought in the resistance. Even more important: Jewish women!
That's what my mission is."
I met Marthe Cohn at the house of the German Consul General in Los Angeles. The 96 year old tiny Jewish woman was telling an almost unbeleivable story of crossing the border at the end of WW II to spy for the French army. I knew I had to meet her again to find out more about her life. So I sat down a few days later with Marthe for more than four hours and still am so grateful she took the time to talk with me.
