Summary
"Franco-German cultural exchange reached its height at the 1937 Paris World's Fair, where the Third Reich worked to promote an illusion of friendship between the two countries. Through the prism of this decisive event, Grand Illusion examines the overlooked relationships among Nazi elites and French intellectuals. Their interaction, Karen Fiss argues, profoundly influenced cultural production and normalized aspects of fascist ideology in 1930s France, laying the groundwork for the country's eventual collaboration with its German occupiers."--BOOK JACKET
