Death of an Occupation Resister -Salvation Army Major Marie Ozanne

The 25th of February is the anniversary of the death of Salvation Army Major Marie Ozanne in 1943.

Marie was incredibly brave and didn’t hesitate to challenge the occupying forces. Unfortunately this led to her paying the ultimate price.

The Island Archives acquired her diaries and this link gives a brief explanation.

There is also an excellent article about her here.

Below is a short video recorded by Dr Gilly Carr explaining more about Marie Ozanne.
