Short biography
Virginia d'Albert-Lake, née Roush, was an American living with her French husband Philippe in Paris when World War II began. The couple joined the French Resistance in 1943, and cared for downed Allied pilots and airmen, made false identity papers for them, and helped them escape to Spain. In June 1944, the Nazis captured her during one such rescue operation and sent her to Ravensbrück concentration camp. She survived the war and returned to Paris, where she gave birth to her only child, Patrick. In 1989, she was awarded the Legion of Honor from the French government.
