Even a rain soaked evening could not dampen the spirits in central Paris on Monday as President Francois Hollande led tributes to the French Resistance.

The ceremony was the climax of several days marking the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris from Nazi Occupation.

A light show and animations told the story of the capital’s struggle under the rule of Germany and the eventual liberation when allied forces arrived.

The message from the French leader was that there is no difficulty that cannot be overcome as long as the will is there and as long as the people pull together.
