How would a French character address Hitler in person in 1942?
It's pretty much all in the title. How would you expect a French citizen (in Nazi German-occupied France) to address Hitler when speaking directly to him in 1942? Oh, and if it makes any difference at all, the character is actually an eighteen-year-old boy, related to some very important French figures, but not anyone of particular consequence himself at this point. His father is a Nazi-sympathizer, and so is he. IIRC, Hitler didn't speak French, so would the character just address him in German, or would did Hitler still have a French title?*
I've already tried every combination of "Hitler" "French" "title" and/or "address" that I can think of, I've texted Cha-Cha, and I've asked a few French-speaking American European history students.
*For reasons I won't explain right now, them not speaking the same language is not going to be a problem for the rest of the conversation.
