The Dark Years After the Spanish Civil War, many Republican refugees, fleeing Franco’s dictatorship, crossed the border into southwest France. When the country fell to Germany in May 1940, and the Germans occupied northern France, the French government, along with large numbers of French and Belgian refugees, hastily settled in Bordeaux and other towns and cities of the southwest. This influx caused serious hardship. After the Armistice of June 1940, the region was bisected by a demarcation line and, until 1942, Bordeaux and the whole Atlantic coast were occupied by the enemy.
Large towns like Bayonne, Périgueux and Sarlat, as well as smaller ones like Mussidan and Ribérac, were granted charters that gave their inhabitants certain privileges. Freed from obligations to an overlord, the bourgeoisie could now take part in public life. In the 11th and 12th centuries, with the encouragement of the Church and of enterprising lords, land clearance increased. Peasants were called on to make the land suitable for agriculture, creating what were known as sauvetés (as at Sauveterre-de-Guyenne, in the Gironde).
