BildSimone Segouin, mostly known by her codename, Nicole Minet, was only 18-years-old when the Germans invaded. Her first act of rebellion was to steal a bicycle from a German military administration, and to slice the tires of all of the other bikes and motorcycles so they couldn't pursue her. She found a pocket of the Resistance and joined the fight, using the stolen bike to deliver messages between Resistance groups.

'An inexcusable mistake' - K-League club FC Seoul apologises after filling stadium with sex dolls
The South Korean side owned up to the mistake after the match, admitting a clear mix-up had been made. K-League club FC Seoul have issued an apology after they accidentally filled their stadium with "adult toys" during Sunday's clash against Gwangju. While the 2016 league champions claimed a crucial 1-0 win on the pitch, it's what happened off it that really caught people's attention. With fans not allowed to attend games following the coronavirus pandemic , Seoul decided to fill the stands with mannequins, only for fans to quickly realise they were in fact of the adult variety.
Coronavirus football: FC Seoul apologises for 'sex dolls' in stands
18 May 2020
It is a challenge for sports leagues across the world - if play can only resume in empty stadiums, how can the atmosphere be improved?
However, not many clubs will be rushing to follow the example of FC Seoul.
The top-flight South Korean side has apologised after fans accused them of using sex dolls in the stands.
FC Seoul insisted they were "premium mannequins" rather than sex dolls - but did admit they came from a supplier that produces sex toys.
And some of the dolls were holding signs advertising x-rated websites - despite pornography being banned in South Korea.
The mannequins' manufacturer told the BBC they had apologised to FC Seoul. But they also reiterated that the dolls were merely "premium mannequins".
What happened at the match?
On Sunday, FC Seoul played their first home match of the K League season.
The ground was empty - one of many measures designed to prevent a Covid-19 outbreak.
So before the match, a company called Dalcom offered to fill some of the empty seats, and the club agreed.
In total, there were 30 mannequins - 28 of them female, and two of them male.
However, fans watching online noticed that some of the mannequins looked more like sex dolls - and some were advertising x-rated websites - leading to the club apologising on Instagram and Facebook.
Dalcom said the adverts came from a sex toy company who placed orders with Dalcom, and wanted to take pictures of the mannequins before the game.
"They were supposed to take all the logos down before the game started," Dalcom director Cho Young-june told the BBC. "But there were several hairbands and logos left to be caught by public eye."
FC Seoul official Lee Ji-hoon told the BBC it didn't do a background check on Dalcom, and didn't realise they worked in the sex industry.
Mr Lee admitted he thought the dolls looked "very human" - but said it didn't even enter his mind that they could be sex toys.
