Thiais is a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 10.3km from the center of Paris.The name Thiais comes from Medieval Latin Theodasium or Theodaxium, meaning "estate of Theodasius", a Gallo-Roman landowner.The Austrian writer Joseph Roth, exiled due to his opposition to the Nazi regime, lived at Thiais at the end of the 1930s and is buried at the local cemetery. The tomb of Russian writer Yevgeny Zamyatin is also there. Expatriate American journalist and novelist William Gardner Smith died there in 1974.TransportThiais is served by Pont de Rungis - Aéroport d'Orly station on Paris RER line C. It is also served by Choisy-le-Roi station on Paris RER line C. This station, although administratively located on the territory of Choisy-le-Roi, lies closer to the town center of Thiais than Pont de Rungis - Aéroport d'Orly station does, and is thus used by people in Thiais.EducationThe commune has: Seven preschools : Jeanne d'Arc, Romain Gary, Charles Péguy, Jacques Prévert, Saint Exupéry, Robert Schuman, and des Tilleuls Six elementary schools: Charles Péguy, Romain Gary, Camille Claudel, Paul Éluard, Saint-Exupéry, and Robert Schuman Three junior high schools: Collège Albert Camus, Collège Paul Valéry, and Collège Paul Klee Lycée Guillaume Apollinaire, a senior high school/sixth-form college
