Marthe Cohn, a 98-year-old French-Jewish lady who was given the affectionate nickname Chichinette, (the English translation is "little pain in the neck") was a spy in Nazi Germany. Working as a nurse in Paris during the final days of the WWII, Marthe volunteered to serve in the Resistance but was rejected. Barely 5 feet tall, she was told that she "looked like a little girl." But her blonde hair and ability to speak fluent German led to her being accepted by the French Army, and soon she was repeatedly sneaking in and out of Germany and reporting on troop activities winning her numerous decorations for her services. Breaking her silence after more than 60 years, Cohn shares the incredible true story of her life as a spy—and the harrowing plight of her Jewish family. An inspiring documentary, as the irrepressible Cohn offers a message of hope for the future. 1 ½ hrs, 1 DVDs. In English and French with English subtitles.
