André Malraux (...) will be prevented (...) realize, who knows, a higher work than that he threatened "It was in 1934 that the two men find themselves following the riots of February 6. André Malraux sign the" Call to the fight "and" Survey Unit of Action "written by Breton against the" real fascist threat that emerged in France on February 6.
