Jutta and Rupert

I am immersed in my research in Lyon, Grenoble, and Valance, staying in a tiny village called Les Echelles in the Chartreuse Massif. This is Resistance country, and we have seen the little village of Izieu, where Klaus Barbie sent 44 Jewish orphans to Auschwitz, the high passes where the Allies parachuted supplies to the SOE, and interviewed two amazing historians about the Resistance. Jutta and Rupert are a German mother and son who invited us into their home for drinks, appetizers, and dinner. Inspiration for my book is everywhere!
