They Shall Not Have Me : The Capture, Forced Labor, and Escape of a French Prisoner in World War II Hardback
by Jean Helion
In 1943, with the war still raging in Europe and the Pacific theater, the French artist Jean Helion first released the extraordinary story of his brutal experiences as a POW and his incredible escape from the Nazis.
He dedicated the book to his "comrades in captivity, whom [I] have left in Germany digging potatoes on the farms, working for long hours as little as they can in factories".
A moving and engrossing symbol of resilience and integrity, Helion's story is available again in this beautiful, new edition.
