Lucie Aubrac

Lucie Aubrac died on Wednesday at age 94.  She was a resistance fighter in France during World War 2.  I have found very little information about her though.  She and her husband helped create Liberation-Sud, one of the first resistance movements.  In 1943, the Gestapo captured her husband and jailed him in Lyon.  Lucie arranged to break him and others out, which they did successfully.  The couple and their children then fled to London, as their cover was blown.   France’s Prime Minister said, “Today, France loses a woman of honor, tenacity and commitment whose devotion to the service of her country and its most noble causes never wavered.”

I know there was a movie made about her with Carole Bouquet.  I know the blog gets visitors from France every so often.  Can anyone give me more information or a better source than Wikipedia?  The French Wikipedia has more information, but translating it brings up something very difficult to read.
