Henri Béraud


French novelist and journalist. He published stories, a short series, a study on Lyonnais humor, and especially polemical articles against the Parliament, the Académie française, Government, antirepublican officers. He was also an international reporter at the Petit Parisien and Paris-Soir, from 1934 - 1944.

Béraud's aid of the Vichy government caused him to be sentenced to death in 1944, but several writers, including François Mauriac intervened on his behalf. The sentence was commuted by Charles de Gaulle to life imprisonment. By 1950 he was freed for health reasons. He died eight years later.

On 14 July each year, a ceremony is organized, at the tomb of Henry Béraud, followed by a symposium on writers, in Saint-Clément-des-Baleines.
