The stories in this collection were told by Pastor Andre' Trocme to the children of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon while France was under seige, occupied by Hilter's troops. The rescuers did not know what their neighbors were doing. No one talked. Excellent for both children and adults.

From the Back Cover:

Here for the first time in English are the original stories told by well-known French pastor André Trocmé as he stood by the huge lighted tree in the church in Le Chambon-sur-Lignon on Christmas Day each year. Trocmé as the Protestant pastor, his wife, Magda, along with many others, are credited with saving the lives of thousands of refugees, many of them Jewish children, by hiding them in the area. Nelly Trocmé was a teenager during those treacherous days. “May the reader remember that several of these stories were written during the occupation of France by Hitler,” the author says in his introduction. “The gospel of the birth, the death, and the resurrection of Christ was the only valid answer to the diabolical horrors perpetrated by the princes of this world.” These tales, many based on biblical stories, include charming fantasy, colorful angels and animals, and a sense of surviving the dangers which surround all of us. Excellent for both children and adults. Great to read aloud.

About the Author:

Andre Trocme was an ordained minister in the French Reformed Church. He spent the World War II years in Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, France. Before working for several years for the European Fellowship of Reconciliation, he returned to the parish ministry in Geneva, Switzerland. He always remained on the fringes of the established French Protestant church because of his pacifist beliefs.
