Beatrice Alemagna [PART II: "...I cannot even relax in all-black circles. I have dealt with much sexual abuse, & cannot wait to choke a female to her death. They've done nothing but attack me, while in steady romantic relationships. And I have searched for a boyfriend for years, while dealing with all this attack on account of my appearance.

French illustrator Jean Jullien draws witty illustrations that point out our absurd addictions to technology, social media and our smartphones. The artist is famous for mocking our obsession, which cuts us off from the real life, leaving us alienated and lonely. Besides his satire, Jullien also uses social networks as a political platform. He is widely known for creating the "Peace for Paris" symbol which has become a worldwide sign of solidarity with France after the Paris attacks.

Jean Jullien's Peace for Paris illustration becomes symbol of unity
June 14th 1940: Paris falls to the Nazis On this day in 1940 during World War Two, German soldiers marched into Paris without resistance, and began the occupation of the city. France had fallen quickly partially due to its ill-preparedness for war, and the formidable Nazi blitzkrieg attack. Troops took over the city and hung swastikas on public buildings and monuments.
