Simone Veil, a French story

By

David Teboul

Through the images of this documentary, Simone Veil removes the veil on her innermost self, revealing the woman who has missed her mother’s presence all her life, a woman who still feels guilty about having been caught by the Gestapo, a woman who has known the worst humiliations and who cannot disentangle herself from the memory of hell. When it comes to her political commitments, and namely her defense of the right to abortion and desire for a unified Europe, they have always been oriented to serve the cause of women.
