The book’s introduction outlines the aim and scope of the book, providing context of the historical period and charting its commemoration over the last seventy years. It discusses the significance of President Jacques Chirac’s 1995 speech in a sociocultural context. It contains discussion of relevant case studies including a self-reflective exhibition at the Musée Carnavalet and Alain Resnais’s seminal film discussing the memory of the Second World War, Hiroshima mon amour. This latter example allows for reflection on the interrelationship between film and history. The book’s place within existing literature is established, drawing inspiration from the work of Henry Rousso in Le syndrome de Vichy. This first section also explains the structure and thematic approach the book as a whole will take.
