La R sistance expliqu e mes petits enfants
Que fut réellement la Résistance au temps de l'occupation allemande ? Comment fut-elle vécue, au jour le jour, par ces hommes et ces femmes que réunissait un même refus de la défaite et de la servitude ? Comment parvinrent-ils à créer des réseaux actifs, à diffuser une presse clandestine, à entreprendre des actions militaires ? Au-delà des polémiques et des légendes, c'est la quotidienneté d'un combat que raconte ici Lucie Aubrac. Sur un ton direct, avec clarté et patience, elle répond aux questions de ses propres petits-enfants, mais aussi à celles de milliers d'écoliers ou lycéens qu'elle rencontrait chaque année avant sa disparition en 2007.

Bien vu bien dit Intermediate French
This innovative film-based program is designed to motivate and inspire intermediate French students. Based on the French film Le Chemin du retour, Bien vu, bien dit is a completely integrated program for intermediate French. Each chapter of Bien vu, bien dit, the textbook, is correlated to an episode of the film. The textbook prepares students for the film-viewing experience through the chapter vocabulary presentations and activities and through additional pre- and post-viewing activities. The vocabulary and grammar presentations, as well as the activities, recycle and expand on the dialogue and structures presented in the film. Pair and small-group activities enable students to talk about the characters in the story and their own lives. The cultural content of the film is also explored in cultural notes and readings in each chapter. Le Chemin du retour, the film, is an engaging story about a young French journalist, Camille Leclair, and her pursuit of the truth about her grandfather’s past. Through Camille’s quest, students are introduced to many facets of today’s French and Francophone cultures, as well as to important historical events in France. They learn language in the functional context provided by the film, and concepts are reinforced by onscreen activities that help students verify their comprehension. The feature-length film (102 minutes) is divided into twelve episodes, and each episode includes onscreen pre- and post-viewing activities that make the film more accessible to students, on both a linguistic and cultural level. Episodes are approximately fifteen to twenty minutes in length and correspond to the chapters in the textbook. Three and a half hours of viewing allow intermediate students to explore the richness of French language and culture. By hearing French spoken with a variety of accents and at different speeds in the film, students will gain confidence in their ability to understood authentic, spoken French.
Resistance Heroism and the End of Empire
This book introduces an English-speaking public to the life of Madeleine Riffaud – one of the last living leaders of the French Resistance. It considers the nature of the rebel hero in France’s founding historical narratives (revolution, insurrection, resistance) while asking what contributions such a hero might make to debates on national identity today. Through a series of narrative close-ups, the book offers perspectives on major chapters in nineteenth- and twentieth-century French history through the eyes of activists who experienced them: the Revolution of July 1830 and the 1851 insurrection against Napoleon, as experienced by Riffaud’s ancestor Edme Liron, and the French Resistance, the Vietnam War and French–Algerian conflict as experienced by Riffaud herself. The book aims to explore the kinds of choices individuals face when their beliefs set them at odds with the state, and to suggest that there is a place for individual action in a global arena where state boundaries are becoming increasingly less relevant.
The Blue Bicycle
World War II uproots the lives of the Bordeaux vineyard-owning Delmas family and forces willful Lea Delmas to assume an adult role as protectress of her rival Camille and as courier for the Resistance
Outwitting the Gestapo
Lucie Aubrac (1912-2007), of Catholic and peasant background, was teaching history in a Lyon girls' school and newly married to Raymond, a Jewish engineer, when World War II broke out and divided France. The couple, living in the Vichy zone, soon joined the Resistance movement in opposition to the Nazis and their collaborators. Outwitting the Gestapo is Lucie's harrowing account of her participation in the Resistance: of the months when, though pregnant, she planned and took part in raids to free comrades—including her husband, under Nazi death sentence—from the prisons of Klaus Barbie, the infamous Butcher of Lyon. Her book is also the basis for the 1997 French movie, Lucie Aubrac, which was released in the United States in 1999.
The current cultural climate in France is often described as one of &“d&éclinisme&” or &“sinistrose,&” a mixture of pessimism about the national future, nostalgia for the past, and a sinister sense of irreversible decline concerning the present. The notion of &“democratic melancholia&” has become widely popular, cropping up time and again in academic papers and newspaper articles. In Melancholy Politics, Jean-Philippe Mathy examines the development of this disenchanted mood in the works of prominent French philosophers, historians, and sociologists since the beginning of the 1980s. This period represents a significant turning point in French intellectual life, as the legacy of major postwar and sixties theorists such as L&évi-Strauss, Derrida, and Foucault was increasingly challenged by a younger generation of authors who repudiated both Marxism and structuralism. The book is not a classic intellectual or cultural history of post-1968 France, but rather a contribution to the understanding of the present&—a collection of soundings into what remains largely a complex, ongoing process.
Thinking Against the Current
This collection of literary/historical essays, written 1970-2010, covers political subjects as diverse as 17th Century Quaker persecution history, the social impact of Malthus, the self-emancipation of English women, Eleanor Rathbone on the human rights of girls and German women's resistance to Hitler. The more literary subjects include the social thinking of the English Romantics, Dickens' Great Expectations, Simone Weil's great essays attacking militarism and Virginia Woolf's opposition to the State -- as well as contemporary American women poets on the problem of war. But despite all its diversity, this collection has one unifying theme -- the necessity for resistance, for thinking against the current', as Virginia Woolf wrote in Thoughts on Peace in an Air-raid'. The torch of resistance to oppression and militarism is shown to have been continuously handed on through the generations from the seventeenth century to our own day by men and women who had the courage, at whatever personal cost, to 'fight with the mind'. This book of passionate, lively essays is not merely a treasure trove for biographical researchers; it is also strengthening medicine, introducing us to unfamiliar forebears who can help us in our current struggle for a better world. As Simone Weil said: "We can find something better than ourselves in the past".
Germaine Tillion Lucie Aubrac and the Politics of Memories of the French Resistance
Germaine Tillion, Geneviéve de Gaulle Anthonioz, Lucie Aubrac, and Raymond Aubrac were among a small number of French men and women who made the decision to resist early in the Occupation. In the summer of 1940, Marc Bloch analyzed the society in which he lived in order to identify and affirm allegiance to a France truly at odds with that which was taking shape in Vichy. Bloch died in the Resistance, but his life would take on new meanings in the collective memories of postwar France. Confrontation with the Aubracs' account of their refusal to accept the unacceptable became another important way the French engaged with the Resistance and its legacy. The acts Tillion took during the French-Algerian War and de Gaulle Anthonioz took when confronted with poverty in the France of the trentes glorieuses, were of a piece with the radical nature of their earlier decision to resist. Evocation of the Resistance provided a basis for France to reconstitute itself with honor after the war. Yet memory of the Resistance could also pose difficult issues for future generations. Those who came of age in 1968 grappled with the memory of the intrepid resisters of the first years of the war, whose decision to resist stood as an inspiration and a challenge. Historians, with the imperative to take the mandate to narrate the past from historical actors, to make resisters figures of history, developed complex relationships with those who had resisted. The essays in this collection address how resisters made sense of the wartime and postwar world in terms of their resistance, and how others made sense of the Resistance itself and its legacy by engaging with resisters and their histories.
Faces of the Holocaust
Based on the VHS/DVD of interviews conducted by the author, in France. Holocaust survivor Marcel Jabelot tells how, at the age of 19, he was arrested with his family. Of this entire Jewish family (16 persons), he was the only one to survive and return to Paris. He rebuilt his life, married, established a business. Upon retiring, Jabelot returned to his first love--learning--to study at the Sorbonne. Instead of Medicine, he now studied history, to try to understand how the Holocaust could have happened in the milieu of European culture and religion. He spent the last 14 years of his life visiting schools and universities, speaking of his experiences, preserving the Memory of all those who "disappeared," and bringing a message of hope for an end to discrimination and a better world.
