"A French Slave in Nazi Germany: A Testimony addresses a significant though little-known page of French history during World War II. While many people know of the Vichy government and its collaboration with the Nazis-in particular the deportation of French Jews-few people realized then, and now, the extent of such collaboration. It would surprise many to learn that the Vichy government provided Germany with French citizens who were deported and forced into slave labor in wartime Germany. Poulard's book confronts this unsavory part of French history and gives personal testimony to the terrible conditions under which the deported laborers existed." - Michael Khodarkovsky, Loyola University Chicago
