Etta Shiber

  • ... after the prison of Troyes, it seemed the height of luxury. I even reveled in the wall-paper, of that curious purple violence found only in low-priced French hotels.

  • I believe in divine justice — even in our materialistic world — but I know it works through the instrumentality of human beings sufficiently in tune with it to strive for its execution.

Etta Shiber, U.S. World War II resistance worker

(1878 - 1948)
