Pierre Laval

1883- 1945

Premier of France

French politician Pierre Laval served as Premier of France in 1931-1932 and 1935-1936. His advocacy of containment of Hitler's Germany was transformed into open collaboration following the Nazi conquest of France.

As Premier under the regime of Marshal Petain, Laval acquiesced to the deportation of French workers to Germany and permitted the persecution of the Jews in Vichy France.

Following the war, he was tried for treason, convicted, and executed.
