First a bit of background:
The other day I went to a lecture about a very brave French woman. She was a member of the resistance throughout the war. She managed to duplicate the subversive La France newsletter on the office duplicator and steal blank identity cards from there (she worked at the police headquarters) She also couriered information to the South of France and the Pyrenees . She was awarded various medals including the Croix de Guerre and Legion d'honneur. Her daughter has written her biography making good use of her mother's journal which she kept thoughout the war. In some ways I'm not unhappy to write about her in English since she married an Englishman and moved to England in 1947. Her children are English
(I think she should be a notable but she has no wikipedia page There is very little in French about her)
Her brother on the other hand was a Frenchman and a patriot throughout his life . He was the youngest chief of a resistance group (Orion). After the war he became a politician, first a Gaullist , later one of the co-founders of the UDF.
He also was the founder of the Figaro Magazine and the author of many books.
He has a wikipedia page and is certainly a notable.
I started writing his bio (the bit I've done needs editing down) but then got cold feet. It somehow didn't seem right writing about him in English. (and with my own perspective on his later politics) The people who were most likely to be interested are more likely to be French. What do others think?
Is anyone who writes French willing to take him on? (I've created his father and know some details of his mother who was Belgian, and his grandparents ancestors who came from the Savoie)
Apart from the information from his sisters biography (written by her daughter in English) which is mainly about the war, any other information I would use would be from obituaries and who was who . I haven't been able to find many other sources (official list of resistants, memorial to the group and his gravestone)
(note, I lived in France for 17 years and can read French well but I can't write it very accurately and I'm what the French might term Anglo-Saxon in culture)
