Event description

Description

Madeleine Blaess travelled to Paris in 1939 to study at the Sorbonne University in Paris. She became trapped in France by the German occupation and recorded her experience in a diary, found only after her death in 2003. Dr Wendy Michallat has translated the diary and, working with filmmaker James Parsons, produced a short film about Madeleine’s life in Paris.

Join them, and our Head of Special Collections Jacky Hodgson for the premier of the film and find out about Madeleine’s amazing story.
