“In love we find out who we want to be. In war we find out who we are.”
When author Hannah was researching WW2, she came across the story of a young Belgian woman who had created an escape route out of Nazi-occupied France. As Hannah states, “That story led me to others that were equally fascinating. Stories about women who had saved Jewish children and rescued downed airmen and put themselves in harm’s way to save others. Women who had paid terrible, unimaginable prices for their heroism.” One could question why it is so often that war stories are about the men, when in fact women in all wars have played a pivotal role.
