Probst Solomon - In Paris in 1948, several Spanish students made a plan to rescue their friends who were imprisoned in a slave-labor camp in Franco Spain. They asked two American girls to act as decoys. I was one of them. This is my story. It is what I saw in Europe, and what formed me. With my still camera and my 16mm movie camera, I photographed what I witnessed.
