Another birthday

Thank you for the very interesting dossier devoted to 80e anniversary of the June 18 call. It was important to have this look at the event and its author (The cross June 18). I would express only one small regret: here is a little more than a month it was the 70e anniversary of the Schuman Declaration (May 9, 1950), the foundation of European integration, and this anniversary has gone almost unnoticed when it seems to me just as important in our history. All the media are victims of this Gaullist steamroller which since 1958 wants to make forget everything that could have happened between 1946 and the return to power of General de Gaulle. When will we accept to have a more objective look at this IVe Republic that one seems to have doomed to gemonies forever?
