Residents of Paris gathered at Place de la Concorde to meet allied forces. At this time, a German sniper opened fire on the crowd from the roof of a nearby building (although German troops retreated from the city, small groups of German soldiers remained in it). In the foreground of the picture are seen the victims of the sniper as well as the Parisians, rushing to their aid or fleeing bullets. In the background, the crowd still does not notice the incident, gathered around the allied tanks.
Location: Paris, France
