"As general secretary of CIMADE, the French ecumenical committee to aid displaced people, Madeleine Barot worked with tireless courage in internment camps, throughout occupied France during the Second World War ... that was only a chapter of an ecumenical career that would expand after the war to reconciliation with Germany, resettlement of war refugees and then global ecumenical involvement with the WCC's department of youth, women and development. ... This intriguing account of her life is based on a series of interviews, of which the excerpts here convey the verve and insights of unique figure in twentieth-century ecumenism". -- back cover.
