Alain Rustenholz

Alain Rustenholz, historian and author of fifteen books, half of which devoted to Paris. “”Because a silent city is – in his own words – a ghost city”, he undertakes in his books and guides to make stones speak, to give the city a voice; to give a voice to those who no longer have or never had one. Inspired by Michelet, he sees history as a resurrection. 

He devotes the website: “Les PARIS d´Alain Rustenholz” to the capital. On paper, he has notably published: Paris des pas perdus, Parisienne (s), Paris Ouvrier, Paris des avant-gardes, Paris the dreamed city of Voltaire, Traversées de Paris; all at Parigramme.
