Varian Fry Tour

On Friday, 16 June, members of our chapter and friends were treated to a fact-filled tour of the places Varian Fry and his compatriots lived and worked in Marseille. Over the 13 months he lived in our fair city, Fry helped 2000+ people escape the Nazis!

We owe this amazing morning to the generosity of Jean-Michel Guiraud and Jutta Millas of the Association Varian Fry (https://www.facebook.com/VarianFryFrance), and Sophie Fouace, Director of the Réseau CANOPE, who regaled us with stories of the important work done by Fry and his friends.
