Les Parisiennes: how the women of Paris lived, loved and died in the 1940s
By looking at a wide range of individuals from collaborators to resisters, actresses and prostitutes to teachers and writers, Anne Sebba shows that women made life-and-death decisions every day, and often did whatever they needed to survive. She explores the aftershock of the Second World War and the choices demanded. How did the women who survived to see the Liberation of Paris come to terms with their actions and those of others? Although politics lies at its heart, 'Les Parisiennes' is a fascinating account of the lives of people of the city and, specifically, in this most feminine of cities, its women and young girls
