Following the invasion and sudden defeat of France in 1940, Parisians were suddenly confronted with a terrifying, uncertain future. What would a Nazi occupation mean for them, and how long would it last? Within just a few weeks, their lives would be overturned as the Germans began a four-year-long occupation of the city: endless queues, separation from loved ones, and all kinds of new rules governing everyday life became the norm. In addressing different aspects of the occupation of Paris, this Conversation will examine the complex relationship between the Nazi and Vichy governments, the radical transformations brought to the capital, and the kinds of daily dilemmas its citizens faced.

Led by Dr. Nigel Perrin, a published author, and history lecturer, this interactive will awaken participants' understanding of this intriguing topic. 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 second in a five-part series by Nigel Perrin. Each seminar can be joined independently and in any order.

Nigel has long been fascinated by the history of France during the Occupation, particularly in relation to the work of British secret services, a subject he began studying in 2003. 'Spirit of Resistance', his biography of secret agent Harry Peulevé, was published in 2008. Having completed his MA in Modern History at the University of Kent in Paris in 2015, he has now begun a doctorate on a spatial history of Paris under Occupation.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
