    Like 'shave that bitches head and kick the child out and then we never capitulated and survived'.

    I wonder has anyone ever followed up on her and her kid?

    The woman's name is Simone Touseau.
    She had a lot of problems after Liberation.
    She married and had children.
    Eventually, she descended into alcoholism and died at the age of 44.

    The father of the child did not survive the war.

    As the baby in the photograph of Robert Capa, who is now sixty-six years, the author of this article is able to find and talk with him. But the pain is too great, unspeakable. Promise made to him not to reveal his identity. And will be held.

    The photo and story became part of a book.
