Catalogue ref: INF 3/1800Links to the Catalogue


Image for a series on the resistance movement, depicting a man in prison uniform sitting in the corner of a cell in a distressed and depressed state as the sunlight streams onto his shaven head. Members of the resistance movement regularly put themselves at risk of arrest, and often mounted missions to rescue Allied soldiers who had been captured, smuggling them back to the UK.
