La victoire triste ? : espérances, déceptions et commémorations de la victoire dans le département du Puy-de-Dôme en sortie de guerre (1918-1924)

Abstract : The 1918 victory is studied at the level of the Puy-de-Dôme department until 1924, when the London conference attempted at settling the "compensations" issue. It was seen more as the Victory from the Nation, rather than the one from the Republic. It meant huge expectations which quickly disappointed bitterly many a person. The time span over the exit from war insists on how the public opinion felt in early 1918, as well as on the slow and uneven remobilization of the public opinion after the Victory. It was remobilized in 1923 when the Ruhr was occupied. The exit from war is ritualized by huge festive and commemorating events, such as Victory Day, the soldiers coming home, re-inhumations, the November ceremonies as well as War Memorials unveilings. The Victory was synonymous with great jubilation, but it turned out to be a sad Victory related to mourning and sacrifices. It hinders the cultural demobilization which was still under way. The meaning of the term "Victory" has become conflictual.
