What was life like for the French living in the Pyrenees, a route to freedom for refugees during WWII? A British journalist who settled in the area sought answers about the real role of the Resistance, the level of collaboration, the local concentration camps, and the treatment of Jews and other refugees. While much remains hidden, a portrait of human heroism and cruelty comes to light.
