(1899-1943)

Died aged 44

Jean Pierre Moulin (French: [ʒɑ̃ mu.lɛ̃]; 20 June 1899 – 8 July 1943) was a French civil servant who served as the first President of the National Council of the Resistance during World War II from 23 May 1943 until his death less than two months later. A prefect in Aveyron (1937–1939) and Eure-et-Loir (1939–1940), he is remembered today as one of the main heroes of the French Resistance, unifying it under Charles de Gaulle. He was tortured by German officer Klaus Barbie while in Gestapo custody; he died in the train that transported him to Germany before crossing the border. His death was registered at Metz railway station.
