Name origin

In 1945 the street was renamed in honor of the French politician Louis Georges Rothschild alias Georges Mandel (1885-1944). Mandel, who lived on Avenue Mozart , also in the 16th arrondissement, during his Parisian years , was shot by the Gestapo and the French militia on July 7, 1944 during World War II in retaliation for an attack by the Resistance in a forest near Fontainebleau .


The current avenue Georges Mandel corresponds to part of the old avenue de l'Empereur of Passy . It was added to the Paris road network in 1863 when Passy was incorporated into the Parisian road network and renamed “Avenue du Trocadéro” after the fall of the Second Empire . Part of this avenue became avenue Henri-Martin on November 10, 1885 . In 1941 part of it became "Avenue Jean-Chiappe"; Jean Chiappe (1878-1940) was a high functionary in the service of the Vichy regime . The avenue Jean-Chiappe was then renamed in 1945 after Georges Mandel. The inauguration took place in 1945 by the then mayor André Le Troquer

On December 12, 2000, the avenue in the middle of the street was renamed " Allée Maria-Callas ".
