Memorial transmission of Suzanne Leclézio and Yvonne Ziegler’s story
Suzanne Leclézio and Yvonne Ziegler’s story came to us thanks to Laurent Thévenet, researcher in history. He continues his research work on railway social workers through a series of biographical stories. In 2020, He is preparing two books, one on the railwaymen “Justes parmi les Nations” and a second one about biographies of social workers. He is a member of the Research and Study Group on the History of Social Work. One of the biographies will appear in April in number 53 of the railway history review. His biographies project aims to highlight remarkable women, their paths, actions even if these characters often remained in the shadows. The main sources of this work come from the SNCF archives, The Germaine Tillon Fund at the Museum of Resistance and Deportation of Besançon, The Historical Defense Service, The Historical Society of Mauritius and numerous works and testimonies of resistant and deported people.
Laurent Thévenet responded positively to Queer Code’s invitation to participate in the exhibition “Broken Constellations” presented for the 75th anniversary of Liberation of Ravensbrück camp. He prepared the content of this digital cartography in cooperation with the Queer Code collective. He’s working to honor the engagements within the resistance of Suzanne Leclézio and Yvonne Ziegler by asking for a commemorative plaque on the facade of the dispensary of the railways company of the North in Paris 18th. Queer Code supports him in his efforts.
This cartography was collectively created for the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Ravensbrück camp. This cartography is one of the four cartographies “Broken constellations, Ravensbrück”.
