I read somewhere that some of the quotations are from actual historical sources, and therefore true to history, but I take all of them as true to the novel, true in a way that allows them to be contradictory. Within the context of the novel, all those sources exist and say what they do, so it doesn't really matter if any exist outside the novel or not.
I find it a bit odd when one of the voices quotes one of the other voices. It is as if that second voice is no longer present, as if the one who is speaking is being interviewed or giving testimony about these 'events'.
They are quite funny though; they make me laugh out loud sometimes. L'occupation of the young couple is hilarious.
