Quatrième de couverture

During the dark years of WWII, the French government and the German occupiers collaborated to implement their brutal policies of racial cleansing, terror and economic servitude. Tens of thousands of people threatened by Nazi roundups were looking for ways to escape. The people of Dieulefit and its neighboring villages welcomed a large number of adults and children, French and foreign, Jews and non-Jews. They were hidden, comforted and given the means to survive. In a genuine act of resistance, the local inhabitants managed to save everyone who came seeking refuge.

Bringing to light their actions and accomplishments, to prevent that these silent heroes be forgotten by history, is the goal of this book.
