An act of resistance : the publication of the false Soir

The National Museum of the Resistance and the Archives of the City of Brussels are associated to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the publication of the false issue of the newspaper Le Soir, by a group of resistance fighters of the "Front de l’Indépendance”, on November 9th 1943. Resolutely “zwanzeur” funny, this issue of Le Soir aimed at making a fool of the German occupant and at cheering up the population. As part of the commemorations linked to the project 2018 year of Protest, the Archives of the City of Brussels exhibit some unique pieces from the collections of the lesser known National Museum of the Resistance, among whom the printing plates and a genuine copy of the « false Soir ».
