On Monday, we’ll take some time to go in depth on the topic of the Paris Commune. The commune was a short-lived attempt by radical socialists to set up a separate society in Paris after France’s humiliating loss in the Franco-Prussian War. Like the war itself, the commune ended in bloody failure.
So why does the event remain such a major event in the history books? What did it represent and what is its legacy? We’ll discuss.
