Jean-Pierre Renouard

”On the afternoon of 18 June my brother and I met a British merchant marine officer. He agreed to take us aboard his ship, which was leaving that night. We went home, packed our suitcases and wrote a goodbye letter to our parents. We left at nightfall with a little money in our pockets. We had to walk for hours on the waterfront before reaching the spot where we had our appointment. The ship eventually left without us.”
