Paris After the Liberation

1944 - 1949




A remarkable historical account of the celebration and chaos that followed the liberation of Paris in August, 1944

Post liberation Paris - an epoch charged with political and conflicting emotions. Liberation was greeted with joy but marked by recriminations and the trauma of purges. The feverish intellectual arguments of the young took place amidst the mundane reality of hunger and fuel shortages. This is a stunning historical account of one of the most stimulating periods in twentieth century French history.
