Rose Valland was an ordinary French citizen whose actions made an extraordinary impact during World War 2. Rose was a member of The French Resistance, but her acts of fearless bravery made a positive effect on countries all over the world. This is the story of an ordinary woman who proved that one person can make an enormous difference when they have a positive goal and positive intentions.
This book was created to teach the world about the life and positive accomplishments of Rose Valland. Rose’s entire life will be examined, but her actions during World War 2 and her participation with the Monuments Men will be the main focus of this book. Many people have been recently introduced to the life of Rose Valland because of the Monuments Men movie where Cate Blanchett played the role of Rose Valland
Rose was a very smart woman and she attended many of France’s top art universities. She accepted an employment opportunity as an assistant curator for the Jeu de Paume Museum in Paris, France. There are many important museums in Paris, but the Jeu de Paume Museum was not as well known as the other museums in the city. This all changed when the Germans invaded France and then occupied the city of Paris.
