We really don’t know everything

What huge influence was made by the Second World War on an everyday life in the beginning of decade. Social tendencies dictate a fashion. The Second World War has changed the fashion world for ever.
The occupation period in France prefer to remember as the heroic time. Charles de Gaulle, Resistance… However impartial shots of the photo chronicle testify that all was not absolutely how veterans tell and write in history textbooks. These photos were made by the correspondent of German magazine “Signal” in Paris of 1942-44. A colored film, sunny days, smiles of the Frenchmen welcoming invaders. Later 63 years after war the selection became an exhibition “Parisians during Occupation”. It has caused grandiose scandal. The mayoralty of the French capital forbade its display in Paris. As a result, permissions managed to achieve, but France has seen these shots only once. The second – public opinion to afford couldn’t any more. Too expressive there was a contrast between a heroic legend and truth. Photo Andre Zucca from an exhibition of 2008
