Origin[edit | edit source]

Andre Devigny (1916 - 1999) was a French soldier and member of the French Resistance. In April 1943, Robert Moog infiltrated the Resistance and turned several of its members over to the German authorities. Devigny defended Edmee Deletraz, who was suspected of betraying Jean Moulin, one of the best-known members of the French Resistance. Because of his connection with Deletraz Devigny was sent to the formidable Montluc prison, which was considered escape proof. After being tortured for information he didn't have he was sentenced to death to be carried out later that year.

Using a safety pin he managed to remove his handcuffs and with the spoon carved into a point pick his lock. At night he would discuss escaping with the other prisoners. Two days before his execution Devigny and his cellmate escaped using bedsheets as rope and a broken lantern as a grappling hook. They used this to get to a skylight and the roof, using the other half to stab and throw the guard on the roof off. They then used the rope and grapple to scale the fifteen foot perimeter wall and escape into the city.
