Abstract : The Paris Committee of Liberation is the institution in charge of the coordination of the Resistance efforts and the preparation of the seizure of power in the department of the Seine. Established in October 1943, the CPL is all his life long torn between its local prerogatives and the national dimension of its territory. The coordination of various stakeholders with different and even contradictory goals and practices also determine the CPL actions, particularly the opposition between communists and non-communists. The CPL is also controlled by supervisory authorities, the CNR and the General Delegation of the CFLN. During the insurrection of August 1944, these contradictions threaten to destroy the unity within the CPL, then going through his most serious crisis. However, the CPL is the main architect of the taking over of power in the town councils of Paris and the suburbs. The CPL is the creator of local committees in each district and each municipality of the department. Between the 19th and the 24th of August 1944, those committees took over the municipal power without difficulty, which was an undeniable political success. A period of upheavals follows the insurrection, as the CPL and the CLL become major actors in the restoration of republican institutions, but are also in charge of the public authority in a difficult context. The municipal elections of April-May 1945 put an end to their official existence. Despite the will of some of the CPL and CLL members to keep on influencing the political life, their role is going to gradually decrease until their disappearance or their transformation into societies in charge of the remembrance of the Resistance.
