Soldatenheim / Soldatenkino of Paris

Post by K.V.K » 13 Nov 2007 13:05

Hi Guys,

I am trying to locate all the Soldatenheim of Paris.

I know 3 of them (Les Champs Elysées, Boulevard Sebastopol and Place Clichy).

Do you know others of them?

Ibid for the Soldatenkino (I know 2 of them Les Champs Elysées and Boulevard Poissonniere in the place of Le Grand Rex)

Thank you.

regards, olivier

Hello Olivier,

From Der Deutsche Wegleiter, a twice-monthly guidebook for Germans in Paris, June 1941:

Hello Olivier,

I've posted your second Soldatenheim photo with another one, taken from the opposite direction, for comparison. (From Jean Eparvier's A Paris sous la botte des Nazis.) Although the signs are changed on the Soldatenheim, it appears to be the same building and block. If the Soldatenheim on your postcard is identified as being on the Champs-Élysées, then the cinema right next door must be "Le Paris," from the addresses listed on the plan from Der Deutsche Wegleiter.

Best,
~Vikki

Photos of another Soldatenkino, from a series in Eparvier's book. From the vertical sign, this must be the "Rex" on Boul. Poissonière. In the second picture, notice the shadow of REX in the white of the marquee--apparently painted over when the Germans posted the "Deutsches Soldatenkino" below!

Hello Kurt,

It does. It's the "Marignan"--the third of the Soldatenkinos listed in the June 1941 guidebook.

Hello all

Also thanks from me :D

It is a very interesting tread - but a very narrow field of interest - but facinating.

Maybe there are interest in such facilities about other towns / countries also?

There was also other specials such as "Wehrmachtsbäckereien" (Wehrmacht Bakeries) both in factories and in fieldversions - and other special angles of daily life for the German soldiers.

What do you say - or is that for another new topic?

Regards
Kurt

Hi
