Deposition, 1940-1944 : a secret diary of life in Vichy France

Werth, Léon, 1878-19552018
Books
This diary is one of the most precious - and readable - pieces of testimony about life in Vichy France under Nazi occupation. Werth was a Jewish writer who left Paris in June 1940 and hid out in a small village. We see how the Occupation affected life in the countryside and, finally, the Paris insurrection of August 1944.
