Village of Secrets by Caroline Moorehead
Le Chambon-sur-Lignon is a village of scattered houses high in the mountains of the Ardèche. Surrounded by pastures and thick forests, the plateau Vivarais lies in one of the most remote and inaccessible parts of Eastern France. During the Second World War, the inhabitants of the area saved thousands wanted by the Gestapo: resisters, freemasons, communists, downed Allied airmen and, above all, Jews. Many of these were children and babies, whose parents had been deported to the death camps in Poland. After the war, Le Chambon became the only village to be listed in its entirety in Yad Vashem's Dictionary of the Just. (Jenni_Canuck)
