Little is known about Hélène.
Living in Paris during the German occupation, Hélène, a 14-year-old orphaned Jew, worked in the French Resistance. She wore a gloved prosthetic because her right hand was missing. As a resistor, she delivered coded letters and book bombs, easily walking unnoticed through crowds of German soldiers. Youth was her most potent disguise. After an explosion, she often returned to the scene, but amid the chaos, the soldiers would demand that she go home.
In March 1943, Hélène walked into a crowded café filled with lunching Gestapo. Hidden inside a book in her school satchel was a bomb. As she entered the café and walked toward the toilet, she surveyed the noisy Germans. In the bathroom, she removed her prosthetic thumb to expose a long pin and, with a poke, started the timer. She replaced her thumb, then breathed deeply. She opened the door and walked behind the crowded tables, dipping slightly to stash her satchel. Eager to escape the stench of sauerkraut, she glided out of the café and scampered across the street to a school.
After stepping inside a small lobby, she turned to watch the explosion through a large window. Her eyes fell on a young soldier who was following behind her, clutching the satchel. As he pulled the door, she panicked and jammed her prosthetic hand into the door, pinning it shut. Confused, the soldier shouted and banged on the door. Alarmed, the schoolchildren leapt to the window. The bomb exploded.
Please note, "Hélène" is in concept stage, still waiting for funding.
