The author attentively includes German and French letters and journals that explain the loneliness, desperation and the very French way of getting by. The German theatre has long been faced with the dilemma of either being bold and innovative or relying on the rich repertoire of German classics from the 18th and 19th centuries, a limited number of established 20th-century dramas from artists such as Brecht, Carl Zuckmayer, or Max Frisch, and contemporary plays in translation from Britain, France, and the United States.

The Battle of Normandy, from the Occupation to the Liberation - A talk with Dominique François, author, historian and well-known expert of the D-Day landings and Normandy with an introduction by Guillaume Lacroix, Consul General of France in Chicago and Colonel Donald G.

Music under German Occupation is written for all music-lovers, students, professionals and academics who have particular interests in 20th-century music and/or the vicissitudes of European cultural life during World War II.
