“Fashion Accessories under the Occupation 1940-1944
Fashion Accessories under the Occupation 1940-1944” was the original title of a show that hits an ultra-sensitive spot in French history. The subtle patriotism of suede sandals decorated with the Allied flag or red/white/blue buttons sewn on a coat are now displayed under a different banner. The title was changed at this modest museum, dedicated since 1995 as a memorial to the war, the Nazi occupation and the liberation of Paris.
