In June 1940, Germany occupies northern France. The rest of the country is occupied in November 1942.

“It was an early afternoon in June, a beautiful month in France, and all the windows were open when we heard a low rumbling coming from [the top of the hill], from the direction of Paris. I ran to the window and saw, coming down the hill, some motorcycles ridden by men wearing goggles. Following them came tanks bearing the dreaded swastikas.”
