Interviews in this issue:
- Monique se rappelle sa préceptrice
Monique and her siblings grew up in the sheltered
environment of their family's estate. They never
played with local children; and a private tutor came
to the house to teach them. At the age of 11, when
she went to boarding school, Monique felt
unprepared for the outside world.
- Un génocide de canaris
Yves is an attorney in Toulouse. He spoke with
Martin Venzal about one of his more memorable
cases: that of the canary genocide.
- Christine veut avoir un bébé
Christine wants a child, but she is single. She has
looked into adoption and artificial insemination, but
in France, both of these routes to parenthood appear
closed to single mothers.
- Eddu, le whisky breton
Guy Le Lay is very proud of his Breton heritage and
he has strong feelings for the Welsh, the Irish and the
Scotch, since, as everyone knows, they are cousins of
the Bretons. It was during a trip to Scotland that Guy
had the great idea of making whiskey from that most
traditional of Breton crops: buckwheat!
- Noël à Strasbourg
Did you know that the Christmas tree was born in
Alsace? And that the Christmas market in Strasbourg
is over 400 years old? Anne-Sophie Martin spoke
with Antoinette Pflimlin about the market and about
Strasbourg's giant Christmas tree.
