The French village of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon was inhabited by rough farmers of Huguenot descent. They knew a lot about religious persecution from their history. So, during World War II when Hitler imposed his heinous laws and set out to arrest all Jews, this village would not stand for it. This is one of the epic sagas of the war, this century, and Western civilization. Under the courageous leadership of a Christian pastor, this village risked extermination by the Nazis to provide safety and refuge for 5,000 Jewish children. In this compelling drama we see the human side of Le Chambon: How much can they risk before they break? How to handle the inevitable human conflicts? And then there are those who fall in love at the most inopportune time. In French with English subtitles. 118 minutes.
