Totally annexed in November 1942, France organized itself under German rule according to various degrees of oppression and resistance. Whether living in the so-called “free zone” under the Vichy regime or in the occupied zone directly controled by the Germans, the French have had to choose: to resist, collaborate or remain neutral. Each large city has its own history. Through witness accounts of local residents who experienced that period, partisans, survivors, as well as local historians, this documentary collection describes how millions of French people lived under German occupation.
