Simone Segouin/Nicole Minet: French Resistance Fighter

“…One of the purest fighters of heroic French Resistance who prepared the way for the Liberation”

18 years old in this photograph (1944)

Her first mission: steal a Nazi’s bike.

Then she and her team derailed trains, blew up bridges, arrested 25 Nazi’s in a single day, and well, liberated France.
