A drama of faith and family: custody disputes in post-liberation France

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk will examine the Finaly Affair of 1953, in which a Catholic woman had two Jewish children baptised and kidnapped to Spain. We will discuss how such custody disputes reveal competing notions about French national identity in the wake of Vichy.
