Something for VE Day

A Real Female Hero for VE Day

Simone Segouin, mostly known by her codename, Nicole Minet, was only 18 when the Germans invaded. Her first act of rebellion was to steal a bicycle from a German military administration, slicing the tires of all of the other bikes and motorcycles so they couldn't pursue her. She found a pocket of the Resistance and joined the fight, using the stolen bike to deliver messages between Resistance groups.

She was an extremely fast learner and quickly became an expert at tactics and explosives. She led teams of Resistance fighters to capture German troops, set traps, and sabotage German equipment. As the war dragged on, her deeds escalated to derailing German trains, blocking roads, and blowing up bridges, helping to create a German-free path to help the Allied forces retake France from the inside. She was never caught.

Segouin was present at the liberation of #Chartres on August 23, 1944, and then the liberation of Paris two days later. She was promoted to lieutenant and awarded several medals, including the Croix de Guerre.

After the war, she studied medicine and became a pediatric nurse. She is still going strong, and this October (2020) will turn 95.

Our Story

Newport's Alliance Française invites you to celebrate French culture and the French way of life. Meetings are held throughout the year in various locations in the Newport area. Most presentations are given in English with the opportunity to enjoy informal French conversation - and refreshments - following the program. Our many native French speakers are delighted to help beginners or those whose French has gotten a little rusty. Alliance Française de Newport is affiliated with the Fédération des Alliances Françaises which has nearly 1500 chapters located in 138 countries worldwide. Our chapter was established in 1953 by three members, including a French woman who was part of the French resistance during World War II. President Andrew Snook cordially invites you to come and share your love of France with fellow Francophiles. For further information, please contact us at [email protected]. New members are warmly welcomed à bras ouverts! A bientôt!
