Summary
  • "During World War II, French villagers offered safe harbor to countless strangers - mostly children - as they fled for their lives. The same place offers refuge to migrants today. Why?"--
  • In a remote pocket of Nazi-held France, ordinary people risked their lives to rescue many hundreds of strangers, mostly Jewish children. Paxson discovered the area had a tradition of offering refuge that dates back centuries. In researching the story of a distant relative-- Daniel Trocmé-- who sheltered a group of children on the Plateau, Paxson discovered new answers, new questions, and a renewed faith in the possibilities for us all, in an age when global conflict has set millions adrift. -- adapted from jacket
