Turk Turon reminds of a hero of a forgotten age. A heroine? The gender difference is hardly necessary or appropriate:
She volunteered for war duty, put her three daughters into a convent school, and was infiltrated into France as part of the “Spindle” network on October 31, 1942.
On April 16, 1943 she was arrested by the Gestapo. Classified records released in 2003 indicate that her toenails were pulled out and she was branded with hot irons.
She refused to talk.
Odette was sent to Ravensbruck, the women’s concentration camp, for execution. She somehow survived the war and was awarded the George Cross.

She passed away in 1995. She deserves to be remembered.
