On 8 April 2016, around 600 fans of the magazine, attended a banquet in a Paris hotel, to celebrate the 65-year run of the magazine. The banquet included Jean-Marie Le Pen, Pierre Sidos, Yvan Benedetti, Alexandre Gabriac and Robert Faurisson[1]


Established in January 1951,[5] the magazine was started as a meeting point, for those who had collaborated with the Nazis or who had been active with the Vichy regime and had just freed from prison.[1] Previous editor of the magazine was Marie France Wacquez.[6]
