This inscription, on a wall on the rue de Seine, dates back to the first months of 1953 (a neighbouring inscription which falls under traditional politics helps to date with the surest objectivity the mark of that which interests us: calling for a demonstration against General Ridgway, it cannot be later than May 1952). The inscription that we reproduce here seems to be the most important mark to ever turn up on the site of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, as testimony to a particular way of life that was asserted there.
