Silver as an investment

Who Was ‘The Frenchman Who Cried’ – Jerôme Barzetti

Be prepared for the next great transfer of wealth. Buy physical silver and storable food. / By Jesse / October 24, 2012

Sometimes there are little things in history that pique my interest, and I look into them as time permits. Occasionally I like to put some of that information here in case anyone else might be interested in it.

Here is an iconic photograph that I have seen in any number of documentaries, generally identified as a Frenchman who weeps for his city as the Nazis stage a victory parade into Paris.

I have always been curious about this photo. I wondered where it came from and who this person was.  It has a certain tragic dignity about it.

And not to be too trivial, but I was struck by his suit, shirt and tie which are almost exactly the types of things I would wear to work in my ‘corporate days.’  I wonder if he had cuffed trousers and suspenders.  Well I doubt I shall ever find out. He looks like a businessman certainly.

Here is what I have been able to discover.
