With more than 440 pages and over 320 illustrations, the trilingual catalogue (French, English and German) for the Carnavalet Museum’s exhibition offers a brand new approach to images taken during occupation and liberation.

Going beyond a historical approach, it analyses how images can report the events to which they bear witness and highlights the economic conditions of their production. It also reveals the processes involved in the construction of the collective memory through images.
