Juliette Gréco - Saint-Germain-des-Prés

 La Muse.  Gréco was born in Montpellier in 1927. She grew up in difficult circumstances without love in Bordeaux and Paris.  During World War II, Gréco‘s mother became an active resistance fighter and was arrested in 1943. Juliette and her sister could not escape the Gestapo. They were tortured and imprisoned. After the war ended, Juliette Gréco went to Paris and decided to start a new life in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. She took acting lessons, had her first roles in the theater, hosted a radio show, and discovered her love of poetry and bohemianism. She befriended Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus and many other writers and artists of the time who would later write lyrics for her chansons. This is also how she came to be nicknamed „la Muse de l‘existentialisme“; perhaps the role of a lifetime. She made her debut as a singer in the cabaret Le Bœuf sur le toit and landed her first film role in Cocteau‘s Orphée. Many more films were to follow, including in Hollywood.  In 1952, she toured the United States and Brazil with the revue April in Paris. Gréco is still one of the most famous French artists and the most important chansonniers. Most recently, Gréco lived in seclusion and no longer performed. She died on September 23, 2020 in Ramatuelle. Juliette Gréco was buried at the Cimetière du Montparnasse (7th Division).
