PALAIS presents: the STAY BEHIND PARTY
Warm-up by Christophe Christophe Hernandez
Evening music selections by MANU M, JO'S STEREOFUNKERS, INCOGNITO (DAMY & FRANCOIS)
In a stay-behind operation, a country places secret operatives or organisations in its own territory, for
use in the event that an enemy occupies that territory. If this occurs, the operatives would then form the
basis of a resistance movement or act as spies from behind enemy lines. Small-scale operations may cover
discreet areas, but larger stay-behind operations envisage reacting to the conquest of entire countries.
Stay-behind operations of significant size existed during World War II. The United Kingdom put in place the Auxiliary
Units. Partisans in Axis-occupied Soviet territory in the early 1940s operated with a stay-behind element.
Btw, Happy Birthday Hernandez Christophe
