Cinéaste et ethnologue (1930-2013)
Switzerland 1987. 16mm, Beta, VHS, colour, 37 min.
After German troops occupied the whole French territory in November 1942, refugee children were hunted down in the former “free” zone, among them those at the Chateau de Hille, under the protection of the Swiss Red Cross. When French police came to arrest and took away all of her protégés over the age of 15, the head of the little colony decided to save them. The determined woman managed to find and rescue them, then set up a way to cross through France and, secretly, over to Switzerland.
