Arnaud de Roquefeuil's "draw my life"

My father Arnaud de Roquefeuil, has told his life in comic strips between 1923 and 1955. The images you can see here come from his drawing album which is in Boucéel.

As chrildren when we were sent to bed, he was going on his desk in the library and drawing his book with pencil and china ink. Next day, at daylight, he was doing the aquarelle.

During world war II he shows life on the front during the "funny war 1939-1940", then his fight as a resistant in Normandy close to the reseau "Liberation Nord", his arrestation by the gestapo and his deportation towards the concentration camp of Buchenwald. I would like to share with you and make you discover this priceless treasure for me and my family
