World War I, of course, did nothing to ease the tensions between France and Germany. But, in , Hitler had the law on his side, and Sorlot lost the trial, forcing him to withdraw the unauthorized French translation from the market.
Whether it was out of patriotism or to earn a quick buck, Sorlot continued to covertly sell the translated version. Similarly, Hitler ensured that the French version was also significantly edited. The numerous anti-French passages that the original edition contained were toned down or cut altogether. The best way to do both was a mollified public, so they sought to blacklist any texts— Mein Kempf included—that could fuel existing anti-German feelings.

After the war, Sorlot resumed publishing, which included printing and selling Mein Kampf. This ended in The s had seen a sharp rise in racism and anti-Semitism in France, and Holocaust deniers were becoming increasingly vocal. By the late s, Sorlot could hardly argue that he was selling a translation of Mein Kampf out of patriotism.
Surprisingly, he was allowed to continue publishing Mein Kampf as long as it contained a reminder of the French anti-racism law, as well as a summary of Nazi atrocities and the Nuremberg trials. After much legal wrangling between the two sides, an eight-page text was finally written by a historian and included in all subsequent editions of Mein Kampf: Mon Combat.

Created in as an alternative to the compulsory military service in occupied France, it encouraged physical activity, closeness to nature and helping the community.
In an attempt to help France recover from defeat, the government placed an emphasis on communal singing, which it saw as a unifying force and a healthy physical activity. In and , musicologist Patrice Coirault and composer Joseph Cantaloube organised the publication by the publishers Chiron of two editions of military songs. Cantaloube also spread these songs through conferences, radio and school teaching. Songs composed after increasingly encouraged collaboration, but they had little impact.
Instead, as with the JOC, the Nazis became suspicious of the group, and when they occupied southern France, 16, members were sent to forced labour camps in Germany. The group disbanded in The group rediscovered old folk songs and learned the rudiments of music theory.
Living together in free France, its members also did maintenance work and farm labour, but used false identities to escape enlistment to the STO camps. Other groups focused on classical music. The JMF was an immediate success.
It spread to other towns, attracting a total of 20, young people to its concerts, and reaching many more through its Radio Paris broadcasts. The Nazis approved the initiative because it helped to maintain order in the capital by providing one hour of controlled activity on Thursdays between 6 and 7pm and also reduced unemployment among musicians. It also participated in the cultural project of Vichy by programming concerts of sanctioned composers and encouraging a greater emphasis on music in education as proposed by Alfred Cortot.
Named after the group of composers founded by Messiaen, Jolivet, Baudrier, Daniel-Lesur and Schaeffer himself in , it had as its goal the cultural renewal of France through youth-oriented cultural and artistic events. It was chaired by Cortot, and initially seemed highly compatible with Vichy initiatives. However, the organisation attracted increasing suspicion and in , after a hymn evoking the tragedies of war was distributed with music composed by Schaeffer himself, it was put under threat and quickly disbanded.
Schaeffer encouraged them to stand up for the country instead. Set up in Paris in as a choir school, and unique in not being linked to any one institution, it moved to Lyon in before returning to Paris in
