The Occupation of Paris during World War II was a dark and harrowing time for the city and its people.
For four years, Paris was under Nazi control, and the citizens endured hardship, deprivation, and constant fear.
However, on August 25th, 1944, Parisians rose up against the occupying forces in what became known as the Liberation of Paris. The city was finally freed, and the resistance fighters, alongside Allied Forces, marched triumphantly through the streets.
The events of that historic day were captured by several photographers, providing a vivid and powerful representation of the city’s liberation. Amongst them, those working for LIFE Magazine, are the focus of this exhibition
