- On July 16, 1995, President Chirac, speaking in the name of France, admitted responsibility for the actions of the Vichy government, including the deportation of the Jews to the death camps. As such, Vichy became officially, even if not by universal agreement, an integral part of France, enabling the integration of the Vichy period into the continuity of the French state and society.
- A summary in English of some aspects of this affair can be found in Nancy Wood, “Memory on Trial in Contemporary France: The Case of Maurice Papon,” History and Memory 11:1 (1999), pp. 41-76.
