  Bergen-Belsen Madeleine WEIS-BAULER
 
  Madeleine WEIS-BAULER (b. 1921) was an active member of the L.F.K. Resistance group, her main mission being to collect French currency for wanted Resistance-fighters or other young people who wished to leave the country unnoticed to go to the south of France. The only currency allowed in Luxembourg was the Reichsmark, and any monetary fraud carried the death penalty. When the leaders of the L.F.K. were arrested and executed by the Nazis, ferryman Eugène Léger offered to take her to France in stealth. However, both of them were betrayed and arrested by the Gestapo. Madeleine was put through a series of German prisons as well as an arms factory, where she sabotaged the shells she was told to manufacture. Later, she was transferred to the women’s concentration camp Ravensbrück and, next, the hell which was Bergen-Belsen, where she was released by the British.  The Luxembourgish artist's paintings were on display at the old museum building at Bergen-Belsen.
