The story of Marguerite Chabiron has come to us in a very concise way, through the official sites linked to the history of the deportation and, more in detail, through her nephew Jean François Moreau. At 73, he decided to do his “duty of memory” by creating a fictional narrative in order to convey the story of his aunt.
This story entitled “The strange investigation of Charles Icelui Chapeau. Ravensbrück 2015” is published by Librinova.
This book takes the form of a serial novel and is published on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Ravensbrück camp where his aunt and her friend were deported.
This monthly serial novel led its author to meet and discuss with French political resistance fighters, deported like his aunt to Ravensbrück. He asked historians, such as Christine Bard, about the lives of lesbians in the camps in order to better understand the experience of his lesbian aunt. He also questioned his family about Marguerite’s life in order to share this family history via a fiction.
We will accompany him in the transmission of his aunt’s diary to an archive center.
