This chapter analyzes the impact of the Vichy regime's bronze statue campaign on three French cities: Paris, Chambéry, and Nantes. The competing narratives of local history that emerge in reaction to the recycling campaign help us understand the dynamics of local politics in communities distant from Vichy, both geographically and ideologically. These narratives also reveal the French people's emotional attachment to statuary that had long been considered low-quality works of art but that became infused with new significance when threatened by the wartime regime.
