Storyboard Text

  • Exposition: Rough Childhood
  • Rising Action: Where It All Began
  • Nancy, your job is to help the French out. Get them some food and help them outta here.
  • Yes sir!
  • Climax: Helping the French
  • Nancy Wake had a rough childhood. Her father had abandoned her and her family when she was a child. The mother was left alone to take care of Nancy and her five siblings, so she was very bitter. Fed up with the lack of affection and poor conditions, Nancy ran away from home.
  • Falling Action: Escaping
  • Eventually, Nancy became a Resistance member. As she had traveled around Europe, she had witnessed horrible levels of anti-semitism, which developed a hatred towards Jews. She became an Allied spy and started helping the French that were in hiding.
  • Resolution: Legacy
  • Nancy smuggled food for the French in hiding. It wasn't the best food, but it tasted better than soot and dirt that was often consumed, one way or another.
  • Nancy got married to Henri Fiocca, a wealthy Frenchman. Due to her luxury of being the beautiful wife of a rich businessman, she had privileges few could even imagine. She managed to keep her job and keep herself in the Vichy Zone. She bought an ambulance, which she used to smuggle the French out of German-occupied Europe.
  • Come on, get in quickly!
  • Merci, dear. Thank you so much.
  • Nancy went on many missions for the Resistance. She saved thousands of Jews from camps and saved many more lives. She was on the Gestapo's Most Wanted List, and she was known as 'The White Mouse' to the German. This brave woman, unfortunately, passed away on August 7th, 2011. However, Nancy Wake has made an impact on thousands of lives, and her ever-lasting legacy will forever be with us.
