            Nasty Women

            Release date : 21/02/2019
            Cédric Meletta, specialist of France’s Nazi Occupation, reveals the diabolical fate of seven women who were among the most involved in the collaboration.
            Their names are Andrée Cotillon, Alice Mackert, Juliette Goublet, Rudolfina Kahan, Walraute Jacobson, Hélène de Tranzé, and Maud Champetier de Ribes. They were common-law wives, spies, skid row whores, daytime prostitutes, intellectuals, or penniless aristocrats, all of whom got mixed up with the underworld, lent a hand to the Gestapo,... Their names are Andrée Cotillon, Alice Mackert, Juliette Goublet, Rudolfina Kahan, Walraute Jacobson, Hélène de Tranzé, and Maud Champetier de Ribes. They were common-law wives, spies, skid row whores, daytime prostitutes, intellectuals, or penniless aristocrats, all of whom got mixed up with the underworld, lent a hand to the Gestapo, and got too deep in sordid affairs. These nasty women led tumultuous lives, taking part in rounding up children to be sent to the camps, serving as beaters for the sinister Dr. Petiot and tracking members of the Resistance in the battle of Vercours alongside German Occupiers.
            The author has traced the footsteps of these rogue, predatory, and forgotten women, uncovering secrets in archives like in a Modiano novel. He lifts a taboo by showing that it was not only men involved in the collaboration, but also women. The majority were hunted down and condemned during the Liberation, and some were shot during summary executions. Rather than putting them on trial once more, Cédric Meletta seeks to dive into the lives of each one, probe their black souls like one would when reopening a long-buried case file, and offer a fascinating picture of the atmosphere and intrigues of the Occupation period, which he recreates with great psychological finesse and an acute sense for detail and anecdotes. His account is just as much that of a novelist as a historian.
