Abstract

This presentation covers the World War II division of France into occupied an unoccupied zone, focusing on the two capitals, Paris and Vichy. Although divided by the demarcation line, all the French shared an interest in survival. The French had to adapt their daily lives to the new policies and regulations imposed upon them by the Germans. In Vichy France, this meant tolerating Pétain’s new radically-conservative government. In Occupied France, French citizens learned to co-exist with the omnipresent Germans. Survival was ensured by the people of France’s unwavering hope ineventual liberation and remarkable French spirit.
