From August, 15th 2020 to August, 31st 2021, the Airborne Museum presents a new temporary exhibition: “ France of the Second World War seen through propaganda posters”.
This exhibition deals with the France of World War II seen through more than 70 propaganda posters.
From the Phoney War to the Liberation through the occupation and the Vichy regime, visitors discover a wide variety of propaganda posters on themes as varied as school, family and of course military life.
The exhibition aims to educate the eye and to help visitors understand how these images work. Visitors are thus provided with keys to decode the posters and discover their hidden meaning.
This presentation to the public is made possible thanks to the work of the association Bruneval 42, directed by the three Coquerel brothers. The association lends almost all the posters and is the author of the descriptive texts. The Airborne Museum also thanks the Caen Memorial for the loan of 4 posters.
