    Biography
    Laurette Alexis-Monet was born in 1923. In 1942 she decided to take a month break from her studies of classics at the University of Aix-en-Provence to volunteer for the Protestant relief group CIMADE (Comite Inter-Movement des Evacues). CIMADE sent her to the Recebedou internment camp in Tarn to help with relief work. She later worked in Nexon in the Haute-Vienne region. Laurette ended up remaining in the camps until outside aid workers were expelled in July 1943.
