Macron to Lead Tribute for Hélène Carrère d’Encausse


On October 3, at the Invalides, Emmanuel Macron will preside over a national tribute to the historian Hélène Carrère d’Encausse, who died in early August at the age of 94, the Elysée announced on Friday.

This tribute, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. in the main courtyard of the Hôtel national des Invalides, “salutes the journey of a woman who rose to the top of French letters thanks to the magnitude of her work” according to the Elysée.

Hélène Carrère d’Encausse was the first woman at the head of the French Academy, of which she was a member from 1990 before becoming permanent secretary of the institution from 1999.

A great specialist on Russia, she has written several biographies including those of Lenin, Stalin and Catherine II.

She also had a political career and was notably elected to the European Parliament in June 1994.
