Humanus Yumanus..

Roy Harper & Elizabeth Sacrifice..

Elisabeth Born in Paris as Elisabeth Pelletier de Chambure, into a wealthy Catholic family whose roots were in the Burgundy region..Her ancestors included the Napoleonic generalLaurent Augustin Pelletier de Chambure..Known as Lily, she was the daughter of Auguste Pelletier de Chambure, a mayor of Escrignelles, and his wife, née Camille Marie Courtois Desquibes..On 22 January 1934, immediately after her divorce from her first husband, Elisabeth married Rothschild, a member of the prominent banking family and the owner of one of France's most famous vineyards, Château Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac in the Médoc.. The bride converted to Judaism from Catholicism, and the religious ceremony was conducted by Julien Weill, the grand rabbi of Paris..In addition to their daughter, the Rothschilds had a son, Charles Henri..

Red Cross arrived at Ravensbrück in April 1945..

Following the German occupation of France in World War II, she and her then-estranged husband were arrested by the Vichy government and the vineyard property seized..They were then released whereupon Philippe left France, moving to England, to join the Free French Forces and supported General Charles de Gaulle..In 1941, the Gestapo arrested Elisabeth on charges of attempting to cross the line of demarcation with a forged permit and sent her to Ravensbrück concentration camp, located about 50 miles north of Berlin..Elisabeth reportedly died of epidemic typhus on 23 March 1945 at Ravensbrück..Her second husband's memoir, however, states that she was thrown into a concentration-camp oven, alive..She was the only Rothschild to die in the Holocaust or during World War II..

Adolf Hitler approved a formal withdrawal across the Rhine, but by that time all German forces who were going to make it back had already gone..At night the Western Allies began Operation Plunder, the crossing of the Rhine..U.S. and Filipino troops captured San Fernando on Luzon..It included the Varsity parachute and glider landings near Wesel, and Operation Archway, by the Special Air Service..The first part of Plunder was initiated by the 51st (Highland) Infantrye Division, led by the 7th Battalion, Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) of 154th Brigade..The Indian 20th Infantry Division took Wundwin, Burma..The word talwar originated from the Sanskrit word taravari which means one-edged sword, to defend the Saddle against the Japanese Yamamoto Force...The division was disbanded in India in 1946..., you've got to listen to me..You have any idea what you'd have to look forward to if you stayed here..Nine chances out of ten, we'd both wind up in a concentration camp...
