MSSU Archives & Special Collections Exhibits: St. Germain Raid

Digital exhibits created by the MSSU Archives and Special Collections department.


In June 1949, civilians were arrested on the Boulevard St. Germain in Paris. The French police at first explained that it was for verification of papers and if they were not satisfied, the civilians, particularly Americans, were arrested. After they were released, Americans wrote letters to the Paris Herald explaining their experience.
