Liberated and Liberators



The thesis underlying this book is that multinational communities are part of the patchwork of Liberation in France, and are relevant to our ongoing discussions of the events of 1944/1945. The five case studies (Normandy, Cherbourg, Marseille, the Pyrénées-Orientales and Reims) have attempted to bring together the often separate narratives of Liberation told by Liberated and Liberators. They are sites in which the protagonists met together — sometimes briefly, sometimes over a period of years — and developed a relationship.
