Visions of the Dark Years: World War II and its Legacy in France

A five-week seminar for fifteen school teachers to study the legacy and memory of World War II in France through literary texts, films, historical sites, and public debates that have to do with that epoch, to be held in Paris, Lyon, Vichy, and Caen, France.

This seminar examines the troubled legacy of the German Occupation of France during World War II through a study of important films, novels and histories of the period and its memory. Participants will also visit and discuss important museums, monuments, and battle sites in Paris, Lyon, Vichy and Normandy, and discuss the so-called Vichy Syndrome with leading French historians, journalists, and publishers.
