How did the women of Paris survive the occupation? This was a time of fear, power, aggression, courage and extreme deprivation. Women  came face to face with their conquerors on a daily basis, and often made life or death  decisions in order to survive. . Anne Sebba has assembled an extraordinary cast of  native Parisians and temporary visitors – spies, mothers, mistresses, Nazi wives, fashion designers, in an enthralling account of the horror and aftershock of the war in Paris. Join us to hear Anne reclaim an over-looked but essential story from the Second World War.
