Cimetière parisien de Thiais, Val-de-Marne (94), Île-de-France #7 Jean Hérold-Paquis

1912 – 1945'

Jean Hérold-Paquis was an extreme right-wing French radio journalist shot dead on 11 October 1945 at Fort de Châtillon, being noted for his pro-German activities with Radio Paris under the Vichy régime. In the previous decade he had worked for the fascists in the Spanish Civil War. His epitaph: 'Ce n'est qu'un au revoir mes frères...' ('This is only an au revoir, my brothers') was no doubt intended to have a chilling ring to it.
