The Resistance

Directed by Félix Olivier, Christophe Nick and Patricia Bodet

They dared standing up against the nazis, Vichy and the Shoah.


How does civil society react when facing barbarism? Based on recent research by historians, these films take a fresh look at France in the 1940s. This collection tells the story of the anonymous people who fought against Vichy and the Nazis from June 1940, and recounts the little-known fate of those who risked their lives to save the Jews.
