Life[ edit ] Nizan was born to a middle-class family, his father having worked in rail prior to the First World War. Nizan then entered into a number of miscellaneous jobs around the Communist Party of France PCF , writing for its journal prominently and even, at one point, running a party bookshop in Paris. Nizan later took up a professorship teaching literature, during which time he took on a reputation among students as an affable and relaxed professor, sometimes even offering his students cigarettes during class. As a teacher, he was reticent about his own perspective on Marxist theory, instead encouraging his students to arrive independently at their own conclusions. Soon thereafter, Nizan enlisted to fight in the French army with the onset of World War II, and was killed in the Battle of Dunkirk while part of the French rearguard protecting the British evacuation.
