Notre Guerre

Notre GuerreUnlike the conventional wisdom that the French population caved and meekly submitted to Nazi control after the collapse and surrender of the French military, Resistance: A French Woman's Journal of the War by Agnès Humbert tells of the stubborn resistance that made life difficult for the Germans. The author was one of these who quickly became a key member of the Resistance machine. The book reads almost like a journal or diary of the atrocities she observed and daily life under occupation. She describes how the Resistance was formed and carried out their plans until she and her group were betrayed, taken to prison, interrogated, and some tortured to get information on other groups. She documents many of her acquaintances executed by firing squad or sent off to labor camps. The author was sent to a series of labor camps herself over the next two years but never gave up or lost hope and encouraged her fellow prisoners to help them maintain their will to survive. As the war came to an end, she contributed her multilingual skills to help the Americans find Nazi criminals and sort the innocent from the guilty. This book was originally published in 1946 in French, it was made available in English in 2008. Reads like a suspense novel but it's all real. Highly recommended! This book seems intriguing in spite of some of the threestar reviews it has received on Good Reads. For one, I'm not sure I could ever be "temporarily burned out on WWII" as one reviewer was; nor will the existence of substantial appendices, an involved cast of characters, or any unfortunate disimilarities to The Hiding Place be a serious issue.

Looking forward to it.

Résistance is a woman’s journal that was written in a very dangerous and terrible time. Yet during the darkest of the darkest moments and in the most desperate of circumstances, Agnès Humbert embodies courage, strength and purpose.

Résistance was founded by intellectuals who had no knowledge of espionage, intelligence gathering or secret codes. Their strength was drawn from moral anger and used brilliantly in their fight against tyranny and injustice. Agnès Humbert, a 46yearold art historian and ethnographer, was an improbable candidate for the task that lay ahead. Divorced, with two adult sons, she worked at The Musée de l’Homme, one of Paris’s most prestigious museums. Coconspirators included the unlikely Jean Cassou, distinguished cultural and political figure of prewar France, Boris Vildé, an authority in the Polar Regions, and Anatole Lewitsky, a specialist on Siberian shamanism. Not the usual people selected for an underground movement.

Résistance is not an easy read because it gives graphic details of what actually happened in the work camps and prisons during World War II. It is intense and candid. While there are betrayals and deaths, it is primarily a story of redemption and about the friendships cemented by a common cause. As the story unfolds, I was captivated by the humour and the laughter; at the same time, I was awestruck by how many risks were taken to distribute their newspaper, Résistance.

Would I be as courageous? Would I see the danger? Would I resist evil? If you read Résistance – and I strongly suggest you do – these are the hardhitting questions you will ask yourself when you meet Agnès Humbert.

https://ontheroadbookclub.com/ This book is the actual journal of a Frenchwoman's experiences during World War II. At the start of the war Agnès Humbert was a bookish art historian working in a museum in Paris. After the occupation of Paris began Agnes and other staff at the museum were replaced by Nazi sympathizers. Together with some of her friends she decided to form a small resistance cell to share information and publish antiNazi propaganda in a pamphlet called 'Resistance'. This cell was composed of other middle classed scholars, artists, writers, and even some social gadflies. All well intentioned amateurs. So, you can imagine a resistance run by amateurs was inevitably riddled with amateur errors. It was not long before the arrests began. Agnes was arrested in 1941 and spent the next four years in abominable circumstances. Prisons, forced labor, and slavery. Throughout she managed to stay alive. This is the story of a remarkable woman who was very brave in dangerous times, and of her ability to deal with very harsh conditions.
The book is written in the first person, present tense which gives it a real sense of urgency. The first third of the book is her own journal entries from her time working for the Resistance. The remainder of it was written during the nine months after her liberation, but she continued to write it in the style of a diary as if she had a journal and pen in prison with her. She writes "my memories are so clear that I am able to commit them to paper as they happened and in strict sequence. I remember everything as clearly as though it was written in notebooks, one event after another". I thought it was a pretty damn good book.

An astonishing account of one woman's involvement in the French resistance, her arrest, imprisonment, and experience during three years at German slavelabour camps. Agnes Humbert's account has both immediacy and candour. She survives unimaginable horrors and throughout somehow retains the determination to resist the Nazis even with the smallest acts of defiance and sabotage. An incredible story of WWII. Having recently read Irene Nemirovsky's Suite Francaise about life in Occupied France, I was intrigued to come across this astonishing journal by a woman who joined the Resistance (indeed helped found one of the earliest groups in Paris), was captured, and survived four years in French prison and Nazi slave labor camps. Her journal is first person, present tense, and, except for the years in prison, written at the time, as the events occurred. This gives it an immediacy and authenticity both powerful and rare. Her style combines a dispassionate description of often harrowing facts and events with her passoniate, personal reaction to thempoignant, intelligent, full of rage, humor and humanity. The physical and psychological suffering she endured would have destroyed most peopleand did destroy some of the others she crossed paths with. But she found somewhere the strength to maintain her integrity and her righteous indignation and she survived.

A quote from the journal written after her liberation, after all she went through, underlines the relevance of her story today: "...in the end, national frontiers exist only as lines on maps. There are just people: those who fight for civilization, and those who fight against it. Just those two camps. No more." Agnès Humbert’s story is a remarkable one. A middleaged Parisian academic who – by her own admission – had lived a lot of her life through books, but who nevertheless found steel in her soul when the Germans invaded in 1940. Joining up with likeminded friends and acquaintances, all inspired by speeches by the exiled Charles de Gaulle, she worked within Paris to drive forward a resistance and keep the notion of a Free France constantly in French citizen’s minds. However, that is only the first part of this memoir, as Humbert and her cohorts were soon betrayed and she spent the rest of the war in dank prisons and then working as a slave labourer for the Nazis. The descriptions of what she and her fellow prisoners went through remain incredibly harrowing, but Humbert refused to allow her spirit to buckle – and it’s that resistance these pages chronicle.

Deep down in the British psyche there’s still a grudge towards the French at how easily they surrendered in The Second World War, so it’s refreshing and illuminating to read a firsthand account of the anger which flared up in Paris. Yes, there were people more than happy to collaborate with the invaders and with the new Vichy government, but there were others – right from the start – determined to disrupt the machine. Whether that was just sticking up banners for de Gaulle in toilets or other public places, or typing “Vive le général de Gaulle!” on banknotes (as no one could afford to throw away a banknote, so they’d have to be passed hand to hand) or more ambitiously starting an antiNazi newspaper, these were people who took great risks for what they believed.

But it wasn’t just the politically engaged Humbert met. One of the truly interesting things about the book though is how when Humbert was imprisoned, many of the other inmates were German. Women of the Fatherland who’d committed, in some cases, quite meaningless crimes but were given of years of hard labour in consequence. And even though they were members of Aryan race, they were not spared the cruelty of their captors. As that’s the conclusion Humbert reaches, that there was no shared ideology in Nazism, it just allowed certain Germans to give into their lowest impulses and hurt, humiliate and even kill other people.

Humbert herself was beaten, starved of food, water and medical treatment, and had her hand dipped in acid. And yet when recalling these dreadful moments, she is able to insert in moments of humour which show how well her spirit survived. Here she is on the moment her captors told her she was now a grandmother, but – for no reason other than spite – rudely refused to answer any of her followup questions: “What a peculiar sort of woman I must be. Not satisfied with knowing that I am a grandmother, I also have to know the sex of my grandchild, his name and whether my daughterinlaw is well. Doubtless German grandmothers are much less curious!”

Only the opening section of the book, before Humbert is captured, is an actual diary. When she was a prisoner it would have been almost impossible to do (and a risk not worth taking if she was caught). As such most of the book is written in the immediate aftermath of the war, however her anger at the various injustices and humiliations she and her fellow prisoners suffered is still sharp and painful . There are a few odd mistakes (America enters the war a month earlier than it should) and it does have an idealised view of Stalin’s Russia that was commonplace amongst the left in the thirties and forties, but this is a powerful, unremitting, compassionate and inspiring memoir. Agnes Humbert jumps off the pages of this book. She is so vibrant and alive, you go right along with her, feeling what she feels. Hard to put down, especially once one gets into the second quarter of the book. This is a truly excellent memoir. It is a unique account of WW11 told from the viewpoint of a French art historian whose acts of bravery and resistance eventually get her arrested. Despite deportation to Germany and two years in a slave labor camp, Humbert maintains her humanity, her sense of purpose, not to mention her sense of humor. After liberation Agnes is put in charge of the local German population (her organizing abilities and her personal strength are immediately apparent to the allies). She points a toy gun at the the German civilians and threatens them with it when they are reluctant to follow her orders. Then, she goes off giggling with her friend.

There are literary, artistic and intellectual allusions throughout the book. Some of them I had to look up. My GR friend Wendy wrote that this is a woman she would have loved to meet. I couldn't agree more.
