Paris, Josephine Baker at the Panthéon among the great of France

by admin

PARIS. During the Nazi occupation, Georges Simenon was pretending to be dumb, the dead man afloat. While she, who had been among his mistresses, engaged in the Resistance as a counterintelligence agent.

The queen of the music hall Joséphine Baker (1906-1975) will be the first black woman to join the French greats in the Parisian Panthéon. On November 30th, his remains will be transferred to the monument alongside those of Voltaire, Rousseau, Alexandre Dumas, Victor Hugo or the Curies.
