France – Born in Limoges in 1917, Germaine Ribière fought very early against the dangers of Nazism. She participated in the networks “Christian friendship” and “combat” during the second war.
She organized numerous rescues of Jewish children in several regions, such as in Limoges, succeeding in preventing and rescuing the Jewish community from the great raid of 26 August 1942 or in Lyon. Many children owe her life to her. The Yad Vashem Institute awarded her the title “Just among the Nations” on 18 July 1967.
