He never slowed down at all and showed no visible signs of wear and tear. In fact, we had often joked with him that our next project was to model his perpetual vitality and sustained energy level. On the contrary, Michel seemed even more energized and more committed than ever to "change the world," particularly at this time in our history when a frightening mind-set was and still is spreading seeds around the globe with the vision of destroying our very freedom. Michel constantly reminded us that certain tragic events of recent years have hit too close to home and are too reminiscent of the past evils which he witnessed firsthand in many forms.
Finally, one night Michel managed to carry out a dramatic escape from the deportation camp. This certainly tinged his resolve to survive with an even greater passion. Michel then joined the French Resistance and began a new life in the French Secret Army. On February 9, 1943, while on his way to a meeting at 9 rue Sainte Catherine in Lyon to recruit Jewish refugees into the Resistance, Michel was caught by the Gestapo under the command of Klaus Barbie who became known as the Butcher of Lyon. Upon reaching the top of the stairs, Michel was first grabbed by German soldiers, who dragged him into a room where they kept asking him questions in German.
Tragically neither of these projects had come to fruition, and Michel would often tell the two of us just how deeply this hurt him. He said that he had done so much, that he had tried so many things to change the established system, but to no avail. Michel continued to express these same thoughts during the years we modeled his method and shared a multitude of conversations with him. He would often explain to us how for decades he had to fight an educational system that was so absolute in its structure that it tragically closed the minds of students to the joys of learning.
