Brigg Amateur Social Historians (BASH)
Tue 7th Mar '17 - WITH COURAGE AND SACRIFICE
Josie Webb gave a very interesting illustrated talk about the World War Two heroine Violette Szabo (1921 - 1945). She was recruited into the SOE (Special Operations Executive) as a Secret Agent in occupied France. She was ultimately captured and transferred from prison to Ravensbrück concentration camp to be executed, aged only 23. In 1946 she was posthumously awarded the George Cross for her great courage and bravery. Her exploits have been immortalized in the film "Carve Her Name With Pride"
