Paris 2017: Cimetière du Montparnasse: #12: Helen Hessel

Helen Hessel (1886–1982) was born in Berlin, where she died, although she was a journalist who made her career in France. She married Franz Hessel, and her relationship with her husband and Henri-Pierre Roché (1879–1959) was fictionalised by Roché in his novel Jules et Jim (1953), which was adapted to film by François Truffaut in 1962.
