Module overview

This module explores Franco-German history between the Fall of France (1940) and the end of the 1950s. The first half focusses on the German occupation of France, exploring aspects of everyday life, collaboration and resistance, violence and the Holocaust. The second explores defeat, reconstruction, reconciliation and war memory, culminating in the signature of the Treaty of Rome, the establishment of the post-war economic boom, and the end of the fourth French Republic. Throughout the module we foreground themes of transnational encounter, comparative methods, and the constantly entangled nature of Franco-German history.
