He was known with his code name Quinquin who followed orders and even crossing enemy lines to pass messages if needed. He was killed by a friendly fire at the age of 6 and is the youngest member of the Resistance fighting occupying Nazis during World War II. His bravery was long due and just commemorated last week where his name was inscribed in a monument in Aixe-sur-Vienne.
