What you'll do

As a grandson of a Resistant, I want to see, testify and experience with you what Paris was like during World War II. You will become immersed in what the City of Lights was like during the occupation by the Nazis. What was it like to be a Parisian during the four-year occupation? What did the Resistance do during the occupation? What happened during the Liberation of Paris? Together we will answer all those questions. We will also focus on the history of two famous Palaces: one where a German general refused to destroy Paris, and another whose bar was delivered by Ernest Hemingway at the end of the war, in this palace we will learn the founder of Chanel was very close to a German spy and could save her life at the end of the war only thanks to Winston Churchill. We will see the scars of World War II in Paris. At the end of this experience, you will hear a unique historical testimony, written after WWII, of a relative who was Prisoner Of War in Germany during the war. To have an idea of what we will experience and discover, you can check my Instagram: paris_experience
