Summary
Eloquent and witty, 92-year-old Andree "Poumy" Moreuil reflects on her adventures when, as a young Jewish mother, she joined the wartime resistance in France. Images, music, family testimony and Poumy's own narrative convey the struggle as well as the mysterious exhilaration of this experience. Poumy was born in the French-German border region of Alsace. She escaped the Nazis and saved her two sons by taking refuge in a mountain village, where instead of just hiding out she joined the French Resistance. She translated, carried messages by bike and train, spied on German troop concentrations, and brought food and supplies to hungry underground fighters in the mountains. Acting against oppression helped her transcend isolation and fear. With consummate skill the filmmaker has brought Poumy s inspiring story to life. Here was a woman who refused to be a victim, but became instead a heroic fighter for her country. DVD includes interactive features for teachers at different levels. It comes with interactive graphics, maps, and discussion and research guides that are easy to download and use. Included on the DVD are downloadable, printable curriculum guides for high school, middle school and college History, Jewish Studies, Social Studies and French classes
