Jazz à Saint Germain-des-Prés

In the aftermath of the war, French youth and intellectuals were driven by a desire to break with the past. They wanted to change the world, to re-enchant literature, theater, painting and cinema. From 1945 to 1950, the Saint Germain-des-Prés district became a mecca for Parisian intellectual life and culture. Intellectuals gathered in modest bistros to party, exchange ideas and listen to jazz.
