Remembering the radio operators of World War Two
Home Who are we ? Legal conditions Contact us
During World War Two, hundreds of resistant radio operators risked their lifes by transmitting and receiving vital information and data, regarding the Allied operations and the supplies for the resitance all over Europe. Using encrypted and encoded messages, their work was often the only link towards the SOE ( Special Operations Executive ) in Station X ( Bletchley Park in the UK ). A quarter of the 500 SOE agents who were parachuted between 1941 and 1944 never made it back... Next to the parachuted SOE agents, dozens of local operators linked to illegal refuges, received vital information from the BBC and completed transmission by morse, arranging the much needed parachuted supplies of weapons, ammunition and sabotage gear. The penalty by the German occupant was clear : death by bullet or deportation. In the honor of intelligence service ATHOS, the remembrance project of the HBFV Museum is connecting people with this important part of history.
“ We honor these men and women by filling the airwaves once again, connecting people again all over the world. A call for peace, straight from the places they operated during WWII... “
