An exhibition of rare color photographs of occupied Paris in World War Two has sparked a controversy in France, with some politicians saying it paints too rosy a picture of life under the Nazis.
Apparently the trains running on time wasn’t enough to compensate for the mass executions and torture… Picky bastards. Artistically speaking, the photography’s actually pretty good.

I found the picture of the woman with the Star of David gave me pause, to think she probably didn’t live to see another year or two after that, but maybe she was lucky.
This is a photograph by Andre Zucca. His pictures have been displayed in museums showing a cynical perspective of Paris life under the occupation. His pictures were for a German publication to reveal the same Paris people knew before the war. I’m directing a high school play that reflects the same cynicism of the indifferent Parisians.
