Micheline Blum-Picard

Another hero of the French Resistance during World War II and decorated for saving the lives of U.S. soldiers shot down behind enemy lines was Micheline Blum-Picard. Only eighteen-years-old when she first became involved in the Resistance, Blum-Picard started by carrying messages taped to her back and then progressed to photographing inside factories damaged by bombing raids. By D-Day, however, she was carrying a rifle, a pistol, and a hand grenade wherever she went. Now, that’s an in-your-face woman!

NOTE: The women pictured here are unnamed women of the French Resistance. Micheline Blum-Picard Glover may or may not be one of these particular women.
