This diary is one of the most precious--and readable--pieces of testimony about life in Vichy France under Nazi occupation. Werth was a Jewish writer who left Paris in June 1940 and hid out in a small village. We see how the Occupation affected life in the countryside and finally, the Paris insurrection of August 1944.
