Michèle Agniel (maiden name Moet) and her family were part of the French Resistance during the war, helping to smuggle Allied pilots out of occupied France.
The Moets hid over twenty pilots in their home and helped many more escape before they were caught and arrested by the Gestapo. Michèle and her mother were sent to Ravensbrück. Her brother, only 12 years old, was left behind to be taken care of by neighbors. Her father was taken separately to another camp. They never saw him again.
On behalf of Senator Johnny Isakson we were honored to present Michèle with an American flag flown over the Capitol in her honor to recognize her bravery in saving so many American pilots lives.
