Les Jours sans - Food and scarcity in times of war

Les Jours sans Alimentation et pénurie en temps de guerre ©
This exhibition takes us into the daily life of the French subjected to privations: how to feed in war?
From 1939 to 1949, the French were subjected to an organized system of dietary restrictions that profoundly impacted their relationship to food. For those who lived through the period, one memory dominates: hunger. The experience of lack and privation in these years still resonates, both within families and in the collective unconscious of the French people.
