This thesis examines the relationship between the propaganda of the Nazis and the civilian works of literature, theater and film produced during the German Occupation of France. It hopes to show how the German occupants modified the arts in France to further their own goals and to examine the effects of such changes. It attempts to explain the methods used to persuade or force collaboration on the part of the French intellectual as well as the reasons why some collaborated and others resisted. .Finally, it studies the link between the political ideas expressed in a particular work and their effect on the public at large. Were the arts in France truly changed by the German Occupation, or were these modifications superficial and ephemeral?
