French historian who studied historical problems in a comparative framework. A professor at Strasbourg University from 1919-1936, he co-founded, along with Febvre, one of the most influential journals in modern historical studies. His most important books include "The Royal Touch," 1924 "French Rural History," 1931 and the two-volume "Feudal Society," 1939-1940.
He married Simone Vidal on July 23, 1919 and together they had six children.
A Jew, he became a leader of the French Resistance during World War II. He was captured and tortured. On June 16, 1944, he was taken by truck to a field in German-occupied France and executed by a Nazi firing squad. Sources give varying places for his death, including "a field outside Lyons," Les Roussilles, and Saint-Didier-de-Formans. He reportedly died, crying out "Vive La France!"
