Thierry Lentz: Exhibition “Napoleon on St Helena: His fight for his Story” an exceptional opportunity to see objects that have not been seen together since 1821

The exhibition “Napoleon on St Helena: His fight for his Story” which will take place at the Musée de l'Armée (Army Museum) in Paris from 6 April to 24 July 2016, promises to be exceptional in more ways than one. The Napoleon Foundation has played a part in this project: as a member of the Historical Committee (via Pierre Branda); then as patron, and also lender. This event is an extension of the "Save Napoleon's House on St Helena” appeal, in no indirect way either. Indeed it completes that operation and, dare we say it, crowns it. Thierry Lentz tells us more about the why and the how of the exhibition, from the perspective of the Fondation Napoléon of which he is the Director.   (Interview with Irène Delage in February 2016)
