Archives, newspapers of May 8, 1945

The documents and newspapers of the time were written on paper of very poor quality (ditto for the inks) and have not stood up well over time; their conservation is therefore more difficult.

Below extracts from newspapers (personal archives) and details.

La République du Sud Ouest du 8 mai 1945

Liberté du 8 mai 1945
(journal du mouvement "Libérer et fédérer")

Montauban -  may 8,1945
