Raymond Aubrac

Where the memory lingers Publication date : June 1, 2000

A hero of the Resistance, assistant to the chief of these secret forces, arrested several times yet always escaping, Raymond Aubrac is one of the last survivors of the meeting at Caluire in the course of which Jean Moulin was arrested. In this book he gives a new, personal account of these events, and others, including his political role after the war, his meeting with de Gaulle, his years spent with the Communists, his role in the secret negotiations which accompanied the Vietnam war, and his work for the UN. These memoirs constitute an essential source for the study of modern history.
