Jean Moulin (1899-1943) was a leader of the French Resistance during World War II. In June 1943, he was arrested in a suburb of Lyon, interrogated and tortured by Gestapo leader Klaus Barbie in Lyon and Paris. He never revealed anything to his captors and subsequently died near Metz on a train to Germany. Many historians believe that Klaus Barbie personally beat Moulin to death.

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.
