Seeing images of its empty boulevards and deserted galleries, you may be thinking that Paris has never looked so changed, so alien, as it does today. Think again. Eighty years ago, in the spring of 1940, Parisians witnessed an equally sudden and profound transformation, one they too never could have imagined. Within just a few weeks, their normal lives were overturned as the Nazis 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. These conditions bred uncertainty and fear, but also turned ordinary people into heroes, and sometimes villains. This Conversation will explore these changes, the experiences of those who lived through this time, and how it has been remembered.

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 second in a four-part series. Each seminar can be joined independently and in any order. 
Volume 1: Nazi Paris, Resistance, and The Secret War 1940-1944 with Nigel Perrin
Volume 2: Nazi Paris, Life, Love and Death in an Occupied Capital with Nigel Perrin
Volume 3: Nazi Paris, Women under Occupation with Nigel Perrin
Volume 4: Nazi Paris: Liberation and The Battle For Paris with Nigel Perrin

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 Peulev̩, 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.
