Claude Werth died on 10 August 2011 at the age of 86. He was the son of Léon Werth, Saint-Exupéry’s dear friend, to whom the author dedicated the story of the Little Prince. In June 2010, we paid a visit to Claude Werth, to hear from him about his links to the author. From magic tricks to his first flight in an airplane, Claude Werth shared with us what were clearly some of his fondest childhood memories.
Here is a chance to rediscover what was undoubtedly one of our most fascinating encounters ever.
