The Vichy Policy on Jewish Deportation

Yann Fouere founded a pro-Vichy newspaper, La Bretagne, under German occupation. It was "anti-national and seldom critical of the Germans," a stance that brought its rewards, including subsidies.

‘La Bretagne’ is, in Yann Fouéré’s own words, “vigorous and critical of central authority and of the Vichy administration”.

Hmm.
Everyone, Cornish or otherwise, has their own particular part to play. No part is too great or too small; no one is too old or too young to do something.

Shaggy, I don't care if von Ribbentrop was German Ambassador or a lederhosen salesman. It's irrelevant. He was, even then, a top Nazi (and just how many German ambassadors get themselves invited to the home of Cornish estate owners?). Nor was I commenting on the Breton situation. You said, "We are past masters at Nazi denial". I was illustrating that we're no such thing. If history has to be told, then it must be told, warts and all.

Past masters at Nazi denial was the title of the article from an Irish newspaper, as you probably well knew.

How many of the "landed gentry" entertained German Embassy staff in the mid-1930's, I wonder?

National Socialism attracted the wealthy, afraid that the peasants would rise up and steal the family silver.
