JAZZ À SAINT GERMAIN-DES-PRÉS
Crédits: CC BY-NC-ND 2.0
In the aftermath of the war, French youth and intellectuals were driven by the desire to break with the old system. They want to change the world, to recreate literature, theatre, painting and cinema. From 1945 to 1950, the district of Saint Germain-des-Prés became a major centre of intellectual life and culture in Paris. Writers, artists and intellectuals used to meet in modest bistros to party, exchange ideas, listen to jazz.
