It is with great sadness that I share the sad news of the passing of my great-grandmother Odette. She died surrounded by her family and smiling at us. She was going to be together again with the love of her life — our great grandfather.
She’s no longer with us in this planet, though her legacy will live on for ages, both in the mission of an activist for social justice, against war and the Imperial Grand Strategy for world leadership and hegemony.
During the German military occupation of France, my great-grandmother crossed the border with Spain many times looking for food for her children. She was never afraid, and she was hard to catch by the fascists. A tough young Russian, six feet tall and beautiful.
My granny will live in the hearts and souls of her family, Basques and Russians, the men and women of La Résistance française, and all the people who had the pleasure of meeting and working with her for a better world through the years. And as she always reminded her followers, “never forget that it was Russia who won the war.”
You’ll be deeply missed Granny…
