And I may have been an unwitting participant to this kind of questionable information about the past. I posted about a collection of images dating from Nazi oocupation time of Paris.

Most of those images showed almost normal Paris scenes with seemingly unthreatened citizenry going about their business in Nazi occupied Paris. It seems that the images have been hotly contested.

These images come from an exhibit (“Les Parisiens sous l’Occupation”) of Nazi propaganda photos of Paris life.

The first scene is Place de la Concorde. A German soldier is present on the far right of this image.

Then the inevitable parade down the Champs-Élysées:

Quite extraordinary!
