This library resource is centered on French literature concerning World War II and the themes of wartime resistance, collaboration, and patriotism and the impact the war had on daily life in France. The body of fiction and non-fiction surrounding France and WWII is considerable and still growing. France’s wartime literature reflects acts of suffering, resilience, shame, bravery and cowardice, love of country, healing and recovery, selflessness, anti-Semitism. Whether written as the events occurred or in the years following, though, these tales can be viewed through different lenses. Early novels captured the hardship of daily life under German occupation. As the immediate dangers passed, a revisionist depiction of wartime events emerged with a romanticized perception of patriotic and heroic events. Some later writings reflect guilt for collaboration and inaction as atrocities were committed. All in all, the aftermath of WWII continues to hang heavy over today’s politics and literature. Thus guide includes annotated bibliographies, links to globally available websites, descriptions of museums, historical and cultural sites, and libraries throughout the world.
