Review: RESISTANCE: A WOMAN’S JOURNAL OF STRUGGLE AND DEFIANCE IN OCCUPIED FRANCE by Agnes Humbert

Jew Wishes recently reviewed Resistance:  A Woman’s Journal of Struggle and Defiance in Occupied France by Agnes Humbert for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt:

The majority of Resistance was written after Humbert was liberated, much of it from her diary, and from memory. It is written with boldness, and her eye for detail was amazing, capturing every spark of the moment, every darkness and mistreatment, every gloom and doom that the situation brought. I was in awe while reading Resistance . . . and found myself sitting there with my mouth open, not believing how Humbert’s writing burned through the pages so forcefully.
