On the naval subject, what was the percentage agreed between Hitler and Chamberlin in the Anglo-German Naval Agreement which limited the amount of german ships to a proportion of the British
Incorrect

Hint: First name Alfred

Hehe fair enough.

Ok. Try this bad babeh :

Klaus Barbie , known as the Butcher of Lyons, was assigned in France (well duh) in November 1942. His task was to 'penetrate and destroy the resistance in Lyon'. The question is however:

Barbie gained true notoriety due to the torture of which high ranking French resistance leader?

Just the second name will do.

Following PHB's lead, Im not going to try to answer the next question asked

Well. I could say I'm deliberately not answering that one, but the truth is I don't know the answer anyway.

How long do you wait before deciding nobody knows the answer and providing the correct one?

Correct Dada.

If anyones interested in just how he got such notoriety from one person, have a gander below:
Quote:
Klaus Barbie owed his postwar notoriety primarily to one of his 'cases', the arrest and torture unto death of Jean Moulin, one of the highest ranking member of the French Resistance.

Jean Moulin was mercilessly tortured by Klaus Barbie and his men. Hot needles where shoved under his fingernails. His fingers were forced through the narrow space between the hinges of a door and a wall and then the door was repeatedly slammed until the knuckles broke.

Screw-levered handcuffs were placed on Moulin and tightened until they bit through his flesh and broke through the bones of his wrists. He would not talk. He was whipped. He was beaten until his face was an unrecognizable pulp. A fellow prisoner, Christian Pineau, later described the resistance leader as "unconscious, his eyes dug in as though they had been punched through his head. An ugly blue wound scarred his temple. A mute rattle came out of his swollen lips."

Jean Moulin remained in this coma when he was shown to other resistance leaders who were being interrogated at Gestapo headquarters. Barbie had ordered Moulin put on display in an office. His unconscious form sprawled on a chaise lounge. His face was yellow, his breathing heavy, his head swathed in bandages. It was the last time Moulin was seen alive.
Your question DadaKopf
