FCC Alumna loses life in WWII



Miss Sarasvati Kitchlu whose collegiate career was wholly with us from Intermediate to the M.Sc. and who for a short time filled the post of Demonstrator in Physics on our Staff, went abroad three years ago to the Madame Curie Institute in Paris. She worked at the Institute until the fall of France, when she was arrested and taken to a concentration camp. She, however, was released and found her way to Lisbon. During her passage from Lisbon to England her boat was torpedoed and she lost her life.
