MONACO, ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD
Events that shaped the countries of the Mediterranean
An episode from the series ECHOES OF HISTORY
Behind the postcard image of Monaco lies a dark and little-known story of economic and political collaboration with Nazi Germany.

A dark page in the history of Monaco during which the roots of its current status as a tax haven are born.
