  • Vichy will not go away As I write, France is in the throes of the Paul Touvier affair The Touvier affair is just the most recent expression of what Henry Rousso has called the Vichy syndrome So begins Robert Zaretsky s timely study of everyday life in France during the dark years of Vichy While many studies of Vichy France have either focused on specific live Vichy will not go away As I write, France is in the throes of the Paul Touvier affair The Touvier affair is just the most recent expression of what Henry Rousso has called the Vichy syndrome So begins Robert Zaretsky s timely study of everyday life in France during the dark years of Vichy While many studies of Vichy France have either focused on specific lives or ideas or covered the period in broad and synthetic terms, local studies such as this promise to nuance our understanding of wartime France By concentrating on the city of Nimes and the department of the Gard, Zaretsky moves beyond generalizations concerning resistance and collaboration to consider issues of historical continuity and change within a specific local context In the words and acts of local French men and women, he finds the character of mentalities in the heart of our own century.The Gard is well chosen as the focus of this study From the sixteenth century onward, the region had been a flash point between warring Catholics and Protestants By the early twentieth century, that tension had eased but not disappeared Zaretsky examines the dynamics between local Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish communities, arguing that with the advent of Vichy a regime that, if not clerical, was deeply deferential to the Catholic Church tension and conflict resurfaced in the Gard Nimes at War is based on a wealth of archival materials police and prefectoral reports, official departmental documents, local secular and religious newspapers, and letters intercepted by the regime s security apparatus much of which has only recently been opened to researchers Zaretsky s detailed narrative will undoubtedly provoke further reconsideration of the complex and ambiguous world of Vichy.
