NUNGESSER AND COLI … AVIATION HEROES … BUT LINDBERGH GOT THE HONOURS …

  These days heroes are few and far between. I have since 2011 been writing about the two French aviators, Nungesser and Coli, who should be in the history books as heroes, but are practically unknown outside of aviation circles. Charles Eugène Jules Marie Nungesser (35) and François Coli (46) left Paris’s Le Bourget Airport […]

NISSIM DE CAMONDO MUSEUM …WEALTH IN PARIS & DEATH IN AUSCHWITZ …

    Wandering through the rooms of the Nissim de Camonda Museum – Musée Nissim de Camondo – I was thinking if there is such a thing as a haunted house, then this house should be haunted. I did not however see any ghosts in this house, but its history did hang over its rooms […]
