Charles de Gaulle and his Daughter, Anne

Above, a photo of "de Gaulle and his daughter," from an article about "France's favourite national hero, embodying the country's highest collective ideals: devotion to public service, patriotism, military valour, and personal integrity (he paid his own electricity bills when he was president)" — The Melancholic Prophet. The little girl appears to be none other than Anne de Gaulle, "born with Down syndrome in 1928," who "may have... in her own way... helped change the face of history."
