This is just a question to some well informed readers of this mailing list.

Liberated France ended daylight saving time on 8 October 1944, 01:00, as 
represented in zone Europe/Paris.

Eastern parts of France were still occupied by the German army at that 
time, and Germany ended DST in 1944 on 2 October 1922, 02:00s = 03:00, 
as represented in TZ
by Europe/Berlin, rule C-Eur.

For occupied France however, Shanks claims the end of DST on 3 Oct 1944 
03:00. For all other countries in Europe on German time at that moment, 
Shanks holds that DST ended 2 October, like in Germany itself.

I cannot find a source supporting Shanks' claim for the deviation in France.

Does anyone have information supporting Shanks' claim?
