On 21st June 1943, member of the French resistance Jean Moulin, had been arrested by the Gestapo near Lyon and tortured by Klaus Barbie. No one had ever seen him again. His ashes were transferred to the Panthéon to join the great names of the French Republic, but his hero image had been attacked ever since De Gaulle’s death in 1969. His actions and arrest became the subject of revisionist theories. In 1977, his former secretary, Daniel Cordier, decided to dedicate the rest of his life to the rehabilitation of Jean Moulin’s honour.
