Abstract

From the Liberation purges to the Barbie trial, France has struggled with the memory of the Vichy experience: a memory of defeat, occupation, and repression. In this provocative study, Henry Rousso examines how this proud nation--a nation where reality and myth commingle to confound understanding--has dealt with les années noires. Specifally, he studies what the French have chosen to remember and what they have chosen to conceal. Translated by Arthur Goldhammer.
