Get Ready to join me on a trip through some of the darkest years of French history but also some of the stories of the acts of the most incredible bravery and human spirit and defiance. Meet these people , these amateur agents and resistors, writing in the beginning their single page pamphlets using toy children's printing kits the French writers, teachers and humble manual workers who became the first heroes of the resistance and also meet their adversaries, the ruthless Nazi secret police, hated even by their own supposed kamardes Worst of all we'l See the operating places of the 'french gestapo' the Carlingue, recruited as traitors from among their own people. But we' also see what life was like for the average French Parisian, usually a woman standing in a ration que, and also the average german soldier or haricot vert as they were called, usually a middle aged auxiliary considered not fit enough for front line duty. We'll see how life insidiously changed from Oct40 through to July 42 for french Jews and the reasons why the French Shoah had its own particular pattern. Finally we 'follow the 2nd armored division on its journey of liberation through Paris in August 1944
Il tuo host
Hi , I'm Chris , originally from the UK but I've called Paris my home for the last 13 years. I'm a history fanatic who has travelled widely around Europe to the sites of many famous battles of WW2 and the history of the rise of Nazism. From Normandy, to Bastogne, to Falaise, to Nuremberg, Munich, Berlin you get the idea! Well being based here in Paris iv'e accumulated a wealth of knowledge and a library to match about the dark years of the German occupation and French history of this era. Iv'e created walking tours that will be unique in their depth of detail and interaction for you

Dove ti troverai
For all the tours a valid day metro pass or carnet of metro tickets will be useful , but you will definitely need to use the metro several times if we are to cover the bigger story during which me i will inform you of the meaning behind the names of many of the stations! During the general tour we may time permitting stop off for a quick drink in one of the cafes used by the resistance to hide allied agents and airmen
