The stories in this collection were told by Pastor Andre' Trocme to the children of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon while France was under seige, occupied by Hilter's troops. The rescuers did not know what their neighbors were doing. No one talked. Excellent for both children and adults.

About the author (1998)

Andre Trocme was an ordained minister in the French Reformed Church. He spent the World War II years in Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, France. Before working for several years for the European Fellowship of Reconciliation, he returned to the parish ministry in Geneva, Switzerland. He always remained on the fringes of the established French Protestant church because of his pacifist beliefs. Nelly Trocme Hewett first came to the United States as an au pair girl and remained as a college student. She raised her three children in Minneapolis where she taught French in prep schools. She is presently retired in St. Paul, Minnesota.
