4:35pm ET - In June of
1940 during World War II, German tanks entered a silent Paris and took over the
city eight days later. In his book, When Paris Went Dark: The City of Light Under German Occupation 1940-1944, Ronald
C. Rosbottom, professor of French and European studies at Amherst College,
looked through personal diaries, historical pamphlets, and interviewed those
who experienced the occupation first-hand, putting together a chronicle of
Nazi-occupied Paris. Professor Rosbottom
joins us today to talk about his book which serves as an account of what it was
like to be living in the city of lights during those “dark days.”
