Summary
A small mountain village in France, Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, has a long heritage of dealing with religious persecution because of its Huguenot roots. During World War II, Protestant Pastor Andre Trocme inspired the villagers to shelter Resistance fighters, Jews, and escaped POWs. Their efforts included such activities as forging ration books (so the hidden population could eat), warning of the arrival of Nazi officials, and guiding refugees through the mountains into Switzerland. Author Caroline Moorehead draws on interviews with survivors as well as archival records to bring this heroic tale to life, producing a riveting account of World War II survival. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
