    A most well deserved plaque.
    I paid my respects to her in January when I visited Ravensbrück Concentration camp where she was incarcerated and executed.

    I’ve read “Carve Her Name with Pride” and the movie of the same name is also good. A very brave lady.

    One hundred and seventeen dead out of 470 dispatched...that's simply astounding. Was there a higher mortality rate in any other service?

    Violette Szabo Museum | The History of a Real Life Heroine in WW2

    How the Museum Got Started

    The Violette Szabo Museum opened its doors in June 2000 and was the brain child of Rosemary Rigby MBE who was Violette's aunt. Many years of fundraising and collecting artefacts from people who knew Violette or served with her during the war came to fruition on that day in June.
