Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823419282, Hardcover)As the Nazi Army closed in on Europe at the onset of World War II, desperate Jewish families were forced to flee their homes. In danger and with no safe place to go, the little village of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon and the area of Auvergne, in Southern France, became a refuge for them. A Protestant stronghold where people had once been persecuted for their religious beliefs, the community sheltered several thousand Jews, many of whom were children. In this book the authors tell the poignant stories of some of these children, collected in interviews both of survivors and the families who helped them. Time line, glossary, bibliography, and index.
