Outwitting the Gestapo | [Lucie Aubrac, Translated by Konrad Beiber, Betsy Wing]

Outwitting the Gestapo

What was it like to be a citizen fighting the Nazis? Lucie Aubrac, of Catholic and peasant background, was teaching history in a Lyon school and had just married Raymond, a Jewish engineer, when World War II erupted and divided France. This is Lucie's harrowing account of her participation in the Resistance, when, though pregnant, she planned and took part in raids to free comrades - including her husband, under Nazi death sentence - from the prisons of the infamous "Butcher of Lyon," Klaus Barbie.

Publisher's Summary

What was it like to be a citizen fighting the Nazis? Lucie Aubrac, of Catholic and peasant background, was teaching history in a Lyon girls' school and had just married Raymond, a Jewish engineer, when World War II erupted and divided France. The couple, living in the Vichy zone, soon joined the Resistance movement in opposition to the Nazis and their collaborators. This is Lucie's harrowing account of her participation in the Resistance; of the months when, though pregnant, she planned and took part in raids to free comrades - including her husband, under Nazi death sentence - from the prisons of Klaus Barbie, the infamous "Butcher of Lyon."

What the Critics Say

"This book is perfectly formatted for the ear....Jeff Woodman and Jonathan Davis's delivery maintains a conversational tone. Their easy pace sounds like they're explaining these complex topics to a friend, and they're quite sensitive to the humor of the book. Enjoyable and educational..." (AudioFile)

    "mixed review"

    Although I admire the author for her incredible bravery, I thought the book was a little unorganized. The author jumped from past to present, and included some very French references that I was not familiar with. All in all, it's an interesting book, just not an outstanding one.

    "Interesting Subject but Hard to Follow"

    This should be a very interesting subject but I found the book to be very disjointed and hard to follow. I have given up before the end!

    "Mundane"

    The story of a very extraordinary, courageous young mother made ordinary in the telling. Very interesting but her natural modesty ruins the effect. It turns out to sound mundane whereas it could not possibly have been so.

    The rendition is perfectly good but the whole package is a bit of a bore. I feel guilty in saying so.
