French photographer André Zucca was hired by the Germans to capture propagandistic scenes of Paris flourishing under the Nazi rule for their glossy magazine, Signal. His images from the early 1940s show Paris as sunny, airy, and bursting with color: life in the Nazi-controlled capital doesn’t seem that bad, after all. Of course, we know that these tranches de vie only tell part of the story.
