During the war the Eluards remained in Paris while many Surrealists were in America. Both were active in the Resistance, and Nusch often walked the streets of Paris with large bonbon boxes full of Communist tracts and subversive poems. Lee Miller, a war correspondent for Conde Nast publications, arrived in Paris in 1944 and photographed the Eluards in their apartment.
