This tribute to the Resistance fighter who died a year ago at the age of 100 in Drancy, will use video extracts, photos and discussions to find out more about the life of this working-class woman who spent most of her life in Drancy. Odette Nilès joined the Resistance at the tender age of 15! Interned in several camps, she managed to escape and join the maquis to continue the fight against the occupying forces. Her granddaughter Carine Picard will be present at this tribute.
