FÉVRIER 2015
The Consulate General of France in Boston would like to thank the many citizens
who kindly sent flowers as well as words of support and condolences in response
to the recent attacks against the newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a kosher
supermarket in Paris. We are deeply touched by this wave of solidarity and
friendship towards our country. These attacks not only struck a newspaper and
the Jewish community, but freedom of speech and democracy as a whole.
Together, in France and within the international community, we will stand united
against violence and terrorism. In these sad times, we would like to thank each
and every one of you for your unfailing support.

The Cultural Service of the Consulate General of France in Boston invites all

which will tour throughout the region from February to April 2015.
Mrs. Furstenberg, Senior Lecturer Emerita at MIT's Global Studies and
Languages Department, will lead a workshop on intercultural exchanges in the
classroom, aiming to provide teachers with the theoretical and technical
tools necessary to teach children about French culture, and more importantly
the aspects of culture which are harder to teach, such as attitudes, behaviors,
values and mindsets in today's France, while avoiding stereotypes.
Only 30 places are available for each workshop, so register now!
