(Feb. – Apr. 1942)
Trials held in the French town of Riom, in which prominent representatives of the Third Republic, such as Blum and Daladier, were accused by the Vichy government of causing the French defeat in 1940. The defendants turned the tables on their accusers, however, so that the trial had to be postponed indefinitely. Nevertheless, the accused remained in prison and were later deported to Germany.
