Located on the right bank of the Seine estuary, Le Havre is part of the Seine-Maritime department, in the Normandy region. Its city center, registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site, was rebuilt after the night of September 5, 1944. Le Havre is one of the largest ports in Europe. The history of Le Havre as a port city in the northwest of France begins with the development of trade with America. Indeed, as a city created ex-nihilo on the initiative of the royalty, the purpose of the construction of Le Havre was clear: to establish commercial relations with the New World. The development of the port depended on the increase in goods exchanges. The port of Le Havre was a strategic point for the French port economy, but also because François I was allied with Scotland against England. Thus, the city of Le Havre was founded by King François I under the name Franciscopolis. The port welcomed its first ships in October 1518. For several decades, exotic products (sugar, tobacco, and various spices) transited through it. The port also served in the slave trade. Since the 1830s and the creation of sea baths, Le Havre has been a highly sought-after seaside resort. During the Second World War, the Germans occupied Le Havre. From spring 1940, 40,000 Reich soldiers settled in the port. During the war, Le Havre underwent 132 bombardments by the Allies. The retreating Nazis began destroying port facilities and a large part of the fleet. But the most significant destructions occurred on September 5 and 6, 1944. These bombings aimed to weaken the Nazi occupation. The result of Operation "Astonia" was 5,000 dead, 80,000 homeless, 150 hectares razed, and 12,500 buildings destroyed. The rebuilt city center was entirely redone from 1945 to 1964. Le Havre became a model city, following its inhabitants' demands to enjoy their right to calm, air, sun, and space. During the 1973 oil shock, European ports such as Antwerp, Amsterdam, and Hamburg became serious competitors for the city located on the Seine estuary.
