In the autumn of 1940, Anna Hirsch and her family see little hope on the horizon. The Nazis have deported them to a French refugee camp, where food is scarce and theliving conditions inhuman. Worst of all is the fear that they will be relocated once again...to one of the death camps. But when word comes that Anna and the other children are being moved, their destination is Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, a tiny village whose citizens have agreed to care for deported Jewish children. As the war rages on, the Nazis gain more control in France. Jews, and those who shelter them, are hounded with increased vigor; and when they are exposed, the punishment is severe. Yet even in the face of such atrocities, the good people of the village never abandon their self-imposed duty to protect the refugees who seek shelter in their homes. In this gripping story, based on actual occurrences during the German occupation of France, award-winning author Carol Matas unveils the unflagging courage that made the citizens of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon "greater than angels."
