An invitation to visit the clandestine houses that still exist today: places where men and women tell us their startling lives and their stories of resistance. Where they organised the fight, hid a fugitive companion or published the newspaper and the informative sheet that would then unexpectedly appear under the door or inside a school bag.

These are “normal houses” that still constitute, today, marks of the anti-fascist resistance.

Coordination by Vanessa Almeida.
