The Man Who Saved Lives With Mayonnaise


Documentary filmmaker Philippe Mora tells how his father (aka Mr. Mayonnaise) worked with the French Resistance and mime, Marcel Marceau, (pictured above with Mora), to rescue refugee children during WW2.
His father, who had escaped from Germany after the book-burning, noticed German soldiers would never search sandwiches containing mayonnaise in case drips stained their uniforms.

So the Resistance wrapped the identity papers of Jewish children being smuggled over borders in greaseproof paper, smeared them with mayonnaise and inserted them into sandwiches.
