Geneviève Duboscq was born in Fière Commune de Ste Mère Eglise, France in April 9, 1933. At the age of 11 she and her parents helped rescuing two regiments of American paratroopers in the swamps near her village. She was decorated for her bravery with Guard of Honor in America, Medal of Courage in Israel and The French Legion of Honor. On August 14, 1945, while taking a stroll with her younger brother in the forest of Irsa la Ste Mère, she stepped on an antitank mine, which got her badly injured and her brother killed.
She married Theodule Troszezynski in 1950 and became the mother of six children, the first one dying after a few months after he was born.
She began her long journey to Jerusalem in July 13, 1965.
Her book Bye Bye Geneviève was published by Robert Laffont Publishing House in 1978. The same publishing house published Et Dieu sauva mon fils, the French title of the romanian version The Journey to Jerusalem in April 1980.
The neurologists confirmed her suffering from Alzheimer in 2003, recommending her a treatment in order to slow down the disease. She moved in with her daughter Stéphanie in Chemere le Roi in September, where she currently resides.
