The 3 oldest Children of Nicholas II (Nikolay Alexandrovich Romanov) (1868-1918) Russia & Alix (Victoria Alix Helena Louise Beatrice) (Alexandra Feodorovna) (1872-1918) Hesse, Germany: Sisters Tatiana (1897-1918) the practical one, Olga (1895-1918) the moody one & baby Marie (1899-1918) the kind one.
Marie-Claude Vaillant-Couturier (1912-1996) was a member of the resistance until 1942 when she was arrested, and sent first to Birkenau on 24 Jan 1943, then Ravensbruck. Marie-Claude remained at Ravensbruck even after the war, caring for the sick until the last POW left. Her powerful testimony at Nuremberg was devastating to the defence. Afterward, she slowly walked past the Nazis, looked each one in the eye, effectively unnerving them. Most bowed their heads; others, unrepentant, did not.
