8:00 PM - 9:00 PM

As she fled certain death by scaling a remote Pyrenees mountain pass, the secret agent worried and planned: Would the network of spies and saboteurs she built in France survive Nazi occupation? Would those who had been arrested—including several Jews—survive the torture of Klaus Barbie, the infamous “butcher of Lyon”? With her cover blown by a double agent, would she be able to return and coordinate attacks on the Germans before an Allied invasion?

The agent was American Virginia Hall, who changed espionage forever, escaped with her life, and did it all with just one leg. The public is only beginning to know her full story. Those who know it best—members of Virginia Hall’s family and the deputy director of the CIA Museum—will join us for this live virtual program.
