Life and Faith: A Good Place to Hide

Peter Grose speaks to Life and Faith about the rescue of Jews during WWII by French villagers.

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 about Le Chambon called A Good Place to Hide and he joined Life and Faith to discuss the what drove the villagers in their rescue efforts.
