Angèle Dubeau and the General De Gaulle


Did you know that the Général De Gaulle, while in visit in Berthier in 1967, talked to Angèle? She was 5 and wanted him to sign her passport from the Expo 67′. He did not have a pen, so he decided to pinch her leg instead. The picture above made the cover of La Presse and was republished at the death of the General with the following mention: “This little girl will always remember the Général De Gaulle.”
