A group of Free French of the Interior (FFI) resistance men remove
French and American flags from the building of a Nazi sympathizer
in Littry, France, July 5, 1944, asserting that the owner did not
deserve the honor of displaying them. The German occupation of
France was ending, and there was no shortage of Frenchmen who
had supported the Nazis since 1940 who were suddenly flying
Allied flags. Note that the U.S. flag is a crude, theater-made
version. Note also the resistance armbands in evidence.
