News and Announcements


To all of our friends and colleagues in France, and especially Paris, 
We stand with you in the midst of this horror.
We share with you the sense of violation and brutality.
We stand beside you as you mourn the fallen.
And we embrace you as you seek comfort in this tragic time.

Our deepest sympathies and thoughts go out to all,

David Kammerling Smith
H-France Editor-in-chief
And the rest of the team at H-France
