On Memorial Day we hear a long cut of our March interview with Marthe Cohn, who went to Germany to spy for the French army in the last months of World War II. She was 24 when she began her assignment. As a cover, Cohn pretended to be a German nurse in search of her missing fiancé. One of the things Cohn had to conceal from the Germans is that she's Jewish.

Our original story on Cohn includes a transcript of the full interview.
