Explore Lifelong Learning – The Place of Paris in World War II presented by Dr. Clay Burlingham

Tuesday, February 18, 7:00

When France fell in May of 1940, officially signing an armistice with Germany on June 22, France became divided, with the north and west being directly occupied by the German army, and the southern two-fifths of the country coming under the French controlled Vichy government. In the heart of the Nazi occupied zone, stood Paris. This presentation will examine what that meant, as clocks, flags and life itself became transformed for four full years, until Paris was liberated on August 25, 1944.

Everyone welcome!
