Paris 10

Paris Episode 10 Occupied Paris

Paris under German rule in World War Two

There are still signs of ‘les années noires’ (the dark years) of German occupation in Paris to be found all over the city, for example the many plaques in memory of fallen Resistance fighters and of deported Jewish Parisians, which can be spotted on buildings everywhere. This episode offers a little history, some testimonies from the time and a pointer to two institutions where you can learn much more: the Musée de la Libération and the city’s holocaust memorial, the Shoah.
