German term or phrase: nach Paris
The term "Wach Paris" appears on the blackboard in the opening scene of the 1930 film, "All Quiet on the Western Front"; over some French lettering.

Can you tell me its meaning?

Thank you for the information. I'd felt reasonably certain that it meant something of that nature. However, I am writing a research paper on Erich Maria Remarque, the author of All Quiet On The Western Front, and I needed to be certain.
