More on Desroches Noblecourt

A very nice article from AP as published in the Contra Costa Times:

I particularly like this bit about her involvement with the French Resistance and her arrest:
"During World War II, Desroches frequented some members of the French Resistance and was arrested in December 1940. 'I thought I was done for,' she told Le Monde. 'I told them what I thought of them, and I don't know why, they let me go after two days.'"
