The Liberation of France : image and event( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and French and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Due to its potent mix of triumph and controversy, the Liberation of France from Nazi Occupation continues to reverberate in the post-war politics and culture of France. Resistance euphoria was dominant, but not all French people felt equally liberated, either in mainland France or overseas, and at the heart of the Liberation lies the vexed question of the epuration, the punishment of the collaborators, or those held to be so." "Presenting new research by leading specialists in the fields of history, literature and film studies, this stimulating volume is the very best in interdisciplinary scholarship and will define the subject for years to come. It situates the Liberation in the broadest possible context of image and event, a breadth which extends to questions of memory and analogy, and incorporates subtle layers of ambiguity. Gender issues are given prominence, and the challenging project of examining the ideas and reality of liberation, for French people generally, for writers and film-makers, for subject peoples in North Africa, West Africa and the Caribbean, lends the book its originality and purpose. The Liberation of France emerges as a rich area of theory, experience and opinion, much of it critical." --Book Jacket

Les images oubliées de Germaine Tillion by François Gauducheau( Visual )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indiqué sur la jaquette : A l'occasion de la publication de "L'Algérie aurésienne", livre de photographies de l'ethnologue Germaine Tillion, François Gauducheau remonte le temps en sa compagnie, jusqu'en 1935, l'année de sa première mission dans les Aurès. Depuis sa maison bretonne, en présence d'une biographe attachée à ses pas et à sa vie, elle commente cette première approche du "fonctionnement des groupes humains", qui façonna son destin et ses combats. 1500 photographies développées une soixantaine d'années après leur prise, 400 sélectionnées, 150 publiées. Germaine Tillion se souvient de chacun de ces clichés où la lumière irradie, ces portraits où elle approchait "dans leur vérité" les paysans semi-nomades des Aurès. Son travail : reconstituer les généalogies "en gardant secret ce qui devait l'être". Cette évocation en amène d'autres : sa déportation à Ravensbrück en 1943 pour faits de résistance, "la vraie sauvagerie" qu'elle découvre alors et l'analyse ethnologique qu'elle en fit, qui lui permit d'échapper quelque peu à l'horreur. A son retour, les missions au Maghreb se succèdent. Ses publications la font connaître et reconnaître. En 1954, elle est mandatée en Algérie par le gouvernement français "pour témoigner de l'état d'esprit de la population". C'est ce qu'elle fera, mais à mille lieues de la réflexion de l'époque, en alertant les pouvoirs publics de l'urgence des mesures sociales à prendre pour lutter contre la pauvreté
