La libération de Paris 60 ans après ( 1944 - 2004 )

We were at this parade in Paris in August 2004 to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Liberation of Paris from Nazi occupation.  We were almost the only Americans there. All the American soldiers in this parade were in reality French actors dressed like American soldiers.
We did meet two or three older French women who told us stories of the Nazi occupation in France.
  They also thanked us for the American soldiers who helped free them from the Nazis.
