About this book
The extraordinary story of a French village that helped save thousands who were pursued by the Gestapo during WWII. From the author of "A Train In Winter", it relates how the inhabitants of Le Chambon and the Plateau saved thousands of persecuted people, including resisters, freemasons, communists, downed allied airmen and, above all, Jews.
High up in the mountains of the southern Massif Central in France lie tiny, remote villages united by a long and particular history. During the Nazi occupation, the inhabitants of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon and the other villages of the Plateau Vivarais Lignon saved several thousand people from the concentration camps.
