Le 18 Fevrier

Today I went to the Memorial du Marechal Leclerc de Hauteclocque and Musee Jean Moulin....2 museums adjacent to each other that are in honor of France's liberation from German occupation during WWII. It was pretty interesting to get a French perspective on the French resistance and all the political and social issues of that time. At the end we (I went with my language class) watched a 10 minute film that was sort of went through the beginning of the occupation to August 25th....the day of liberation. Definitely something worth visiting if you're in Paris longer than 3 days. 

C'est tout pour aujord'hui!
