This chapter discusses the origins and implementation of the Vichy regime's statue campaign, which required all bronze statues on public property that lacked “significant historic or artistic value” to be dismantled and melted down for industrial use. Most of the metal was shipped to armaments factories in Germany, where it fueled Hitler's war machine.
