VIOLETTE SZABO MUSEUM

VIOLETTE SZABO MUSEUM
VIOLETTE SZABO MUSEUM

A small museum dedicated to Violette Szabo GC, British SOE agent during the Second World War, who worked against the Nazis in occupied France until her capture by the Gestapo. She was shot in Ravensbruck Concentration Camp in 1945, aged 23. Violette's story was told in the 1958 film, Carve Her Name With Pride. The museum is in the grounds of a small house where Violette stayed several times and was established by her aunt, Rosemary Rigby MBE.  The museum also covers the work of SOE, the Special Operations Executive, in general as well as the stories of other agents.
