French Resistance nurse: ‘The Nazis were like a big rash’

Colette Marin-Catherine was a young girl when the Nazis invaded her village in Normandy, Northern France.

She joined the French Resistance when she was 14, and helped treat the wounded on D-Day. She worked as a nurse in a make-shift hospital with no medical training.

She has spoken to the BBC about her experiences on the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
