La Tristesse de Saint Louis: Swing under the Nazis (1985) is a book by Michael Zwerin.

Zwerin spent two years researching it, travelling across France, Austria, Poland and Germany to interview survivors and unearthing the story of how jazz was banned by the Nazis as "Degenerate music," and yet somehow survived as what Zwerin called "a metaphor for freedom".

Zwerin issued an expanded version of Swing Under the Nazis: Jazz as a Metaphor for Freedom in 2000.
