This book takes place in 1941 in Germany-occupied France. It is about Jewish children who were smuggled to le Chambon-sur-Lignon, a small town in the center of the country, where they were sheltered. The town has long been mythologized for the actions of its inhabitants. But history is more complex. Instead of one village, there were several, and the inhabitants were far from united in their decision to help.
