In theory the inhabitants were Germanic. Did the Nazis get any kind of support from the people here. I would think there would have been many collaborators. And also, in general...maybe this would belong the an interwar topic. Was there any separatist moment from France before the war in these 2 provinces. Nowadays there is none. In fact, I hear French in gradually replacing the German languages here. Anyone from Strasbourg should be more informed than me.
