The Papon Affair book. The book delves deeply into the fascinating debates about the nature of French complicity in the Final Solution and of memory.
The Papon Affair book. First published in 2000 . while some may think papon got off too easily, others will think he didn't suffer enough. he was a high-ranking vichy officer who then got swallowed into the new regime, and his "black past" was ignored - like so many others. this never could have happened in germany, where they were forced to admit what they did during the holocaust - again and. again. highly recommended, especially if you want to see how the history/memory debate is actually relevant.
