Collaboration horizontale, collaboration féminine or collaboration sentimentale (the French adjective sentimentale can be translated as "pertaining to a romantic relationship") was the (supposed) sexual intercourse that some French women had with members of the German Nazi soldiers invasion force after the Battle of France in 1940. This started to be considered a form of collaboration ca. June 6, 1944, the start of "La Libération". After the War, throughout France, women accused of collaboration were shaved bald. In many of the ca. 20.000 cases, the women in question had only performed professional services for the occupying German soldiers, rather than being engaged in sexual relationships with them. "Collaboration horizontale" is believed to have produced 200,000 French babies with German fathers. Since 2009, Germany offers these children of "the other bank of the Rhine" citizenship, after French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner had lobbied for their recognition.
