Oral History | Accession Number: 1989.67.27 | RG Number: RG-50.012.0027

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.

Robert Gachet describes growing up in an orphanage after his birth in 1918 near Chambery; his father’s death during World War I; attending a Catholic boarding school; becoming involved in the resistance to get the Germans out of France; helping Jews as part of his duties in the resistance; knowing that the resistance forces were not large but not seeing his actions as heroic; getting married in 1947; and feeling that young people today are too complacent about war.
