In June 1940, Paris fell and became the Nazis' favourite pleasure ground. Music halls and cabarets thrived. Maurice Chevalier and Edith Piaf, who had entertained the French troops, now unabashedly provided amusement for the Germans. Matisse and others kept out of view, but Picasso couldn't avoid Nazi visitors. A few, like Beckett, joined the Resistance. Some were arrested and died in German hands: others entertained the enemy. Theatres reopened, the movie cameras rolled, galleries sold paintings looted from Jewish families, pro-German writers and their rivals fought in print. And the Show Went On tells how Paris's artistic world lived through the Occupation, from those who suffered oppression to those who prospered through collaboration.
