SummaryPeter Grose tells the story of the town of Le Chambon which saved around 3,500 Jews in World War Two
Between 1940 and 1944 an isolated plateau in France became the scene of a remarkable rescue mission. The village of Le Chambon Sur Lignon and surrounding communities, sheltered refugees from all across Europe. Their local pastor, Andre Trocme, led a secret campaign to defy the Nazis, which ultimately protected the lives of around 3,500 Jewish people. Peter Grose has written a book called A Good Place to Hide about Le Chambon and he came into CPX to share the story and what motivated the community.
