Following the Nazi occupation of France in 1940, Parisians began a long, uneasy cohabitation with their new masters. The humiliation of occupation bred uncertainty and fear, but also prompted some brave Parisians to fight back and embark on a secret, underground war. If the resistance turned ordinary people into heroes, others would become the villains of collaboration, willing to profit from the misery of their fellow citizens. For many more, life would be characterized by ‘shades of gray’ where intentions and consequences could be more difficult to judge. In considering a variety of examples, this Conversation will explore the complexities of resistance and collaboration and the questions they raise.

Led by Dr. Nigel Perrin, a published author, and history lecturer, this interactive discussion will delve into this fascinating subject. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with a better understanding of life in WW2 Paris.

This conversation is the first in a five-part series by Nigel Perrin. Each seminar can be joined independently and in any order.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Very interesting

Interesting to learn about individuals in the resistance movement and the many forms of resistance. Nigel is a knowledgeable and skilled presenter. The information was so fascinating and dense that I will be watching the video recording.

The real thing.

I spent the lockdown months of the pandemic avidly reading fiction writer Alan Furst, starting with Kingdom of Shadows and making my way through the whole lot -- so it is with great pleasure that I am able to view the streets, documents, real-life heroes in Nigel Perrin's presentations. This lecture is especially relevant to the lockdown and resulting claustrophobia and fear.
