Headquarters of the Communist Party

Overlooking the Colonel Fabien Square since 1971, the headquarters of the French Communist Party were designed by Brazil’s star architect Oscar Niemeyer. Following WWII, the site was renamed after the first resistant to kill Nazi personnel during the Occupation of France, with the shooting a German soldier at the Barbès metro station on August 21, 1941. Pierre Georges, then aged 22 and a member of the Communist youth section, became a leader of the French Resistance under the pseudonym Colonel Fabien.
