Commemoration of Simone Chaumet

by Philipp Rodriguez (Jun 20, 2005)

Today, there was a request for details about the life of Simone Chaumet. There's is a chance that she will be commemorated in Israel as she saved the life jewish children during WWII in France. Recently a commemorative plaque was installed on the Col du Fanget.

In SCI we know that she died during Algerian Civil war in 1962. But her family nor her date and place of birth are known. Still the archives are not accessible, where I could find maybe some more details. Maybe some veterans of SCI France can help in between.
