There are few events that attracted as much attention a hundred years after the fact as the mystery around the accused spy, Mata Hari. Even now, the court records related to her trial are still sealed until 2017!
Look here for a interesting first person account of the execution from a reporter on the scene.
The image is from a weird website dedicated to showing official images of WWI executions.

I remember it like it happened yesterday….I worked diligently for the French and they repaid me with a death sentence. Very nicely done jquest. I appreciate the homage to this almost forgotten tale.
You’re welcome. I look forward to reading about what really happened when the court documents are unsealed in 2017.
