Notes
Content : Picture caption: "Auf der Rückreise empfing Adolf Hitler in einem mittelfranzösischen Ort den französischen Staatschef Marschall Petain."

Content : This infamous handshake between Marechal and Führer during their meeting at Montoire confirmed the opinion of many French citizens that their leader was an active collaborator. What was not made public about the meeting was how Petain had refused to allow German troops into Vichy French territories in North Africa.

Content : Title translates German picture caption
