An Act of Treachery by Ann Widdecombe They had entered Paris arrogant triumphant condescending the previous Friday but we had as yet seen no sign of the Germans I was 15 and going through a difficult phase where I felt strangely close yet strangely distant from my family I drove my father Pierre Dessin a lecturer at the Sorbonne to distraction with my laziness I was much happier combing my beautiful long blonde hair My life changed irrevocably when I was caught outdoors after the curfew What are you doing out so late mein kleine fraulein with the longest fairest hair in all Paris said a tall aristocratic figure Let me take you home before you get into any more trouble You should stay away from the Germans my father barked Does God not command us that you should love thine enemy I replied Colonel Klaus von Stobel and I began to spend more time together He poured his soul out about how he adored his wife and children back home and how his mentally handicapped younger brother had hanged himself when he witnessed the Nazis worst excesses Two years later we consummated our love How tortured I was How could I reconcile my feelings of love with the knowledge I had committed a mortal sin against the Catholic church My family ostracised me further after I saved Klauss second-in-command Kurt Kleist from the maquis Klaus called me into the Kommandantur Were raiding your parents house as theyve been using our relationship as a cover for their resistance activities but Ive timed it so we wont find any incriminating evidence What a noble man As the Allied tanks rolled towards Paris our time ran out You must go to relatives in Aix Klaus begged I later found out he had died saving his men and lots of Jews and that Kurt had lost a leg I was pregnant Klaus will never die I thought
