The story of Irène Laure, a pioneer of European reconciliation. Laure was a rebel against injustice from her earliest days. She was an indomitable figure in the French Resistance. Amidst the rubble of post-war Europe she discovered forgiveness to be a force stronger than hatred.
She went to Germany. She spoke to thousands on radio and in person. ‘For weeks my heart ached when I spoke. But I made peace.’ She asks, ‘Why are we so ready to pay the price of war in lives and money and yet not to pay the price of peace?’
