At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.our anzacs are always in our hearts

Nancy Wake most decorated servicewoman of WWII, and the Gestapo’s most-wanted person. They code-named her 'The White Mouse' because of her ability to elude capture. When war broke out she was a young woman married to a wealthy Frenchman living a life of luxury in cosmopolitan Marseilles. She became a saboteur, organiser and Resistance fighter who led an army of 7,000 Maquis troops in guerrilla warfare to sabotage the Nazis. Legend. Absolutely love this story. She has a great sense of humour

The Nurse Who Saved Children From Nazis By Hiding Them In Coffins, WWII

Irena Sendler got permission to work in a Warsaw Ghetto as a plumber. She courageously smuggled babies in her tool box and carried larger children in a sack. She trained her dog to bark when Nazis were near. She saved 2500 children.
