Ah, The French

In a defeated nation suffering foreign occupation and moral collapse, Frenchwomen don the latest eyewear for the camera in Jardin Du Luxembourg in May 1942, exactly twenty-three months after The Fall Of France.

Can there be a more grotesque representation of the ease with which the French adapted to German rule?


There’s something Vichy about the French.
