Our walk will then take us to different sights, recalling the economic, artistic and political Collaboration between the German authorities and the French government set up in Vichy after the armistice signed in 1940.

Eventually, around the Grands Boulevards area, we'll get close to the buildings and places most connected with the German Occupation of Paris from 1940 to 1944, amongst which palace hotels, the Opera, banks, cinemas, theaters, cafés or restaurants as well as unexpected buildings.The tour will go on with an end at Concorde square, where a series of amazing pictures will help understand better lives and situation during this time. At the same occasion, while seating on a comfortable bench overlooking the square, the highlights of the Liberation of Paris will be addressed as well as other anecdotes, more pictures, and more true stories of people and places around.
