a Wehrmacht soldier browses a Paris bookstall, WW2

At a Paris bookstall, a German soldier browses books on sale during the German occupation. The Nazis encouraged cultural activities by Parisians and in 1943 the Propaganda-Staffel reported that more French authors and titles had been published that year than in 1940. Newsstands sold a daily paper and magazines in German.  See earlier posts.
