Until very recently, the historians tended to reduce the episode of the women shaved at the Liberation.
The silence which fell down on this episode, probably fed by the bad conscience of the torturers and the shame of the victims, encouraged Jean-Pierre Carlon to unearth this history to understand what pushes the men still nowadays to have this kind of behaviors of another age.
