Young widow Yvonne Roques worked with Bishop Paul Rémond in Nice to hide approximately a hundred Jewish children during World War II. Yvonne’s home served as a way station before more permanent hiding places were found. Unable to remember the names of all the children she saved, Yvonne shared the photos above with Yad Vashem in hopes of identifying these children. If you recognize any of these children or are interested in seeing more of Yvonne’s unidentified photos, visit Yad Vashem’s website.

1942: LBJ reported back to FDR about the need for more workers in the navy yards.
“He proposed that laborers be drawn from pre-draft-age men, men with dependents who would not be called, men deferred because of physical disabilities, and women who could not only do clerical jobs but also work on assembly lines and in repair shops as well as or even better than men.”
