    Nobody asked questions, nobody demanded money. Villagers lied, covered up, procrastinated, and concealed, but most importantly they welcomed. This is the story of an isolated community in the upper reaches of the Loire Valley that conspired to save the lives of 3,500 Jews under the noses of the Germans and the soldiers of Vichy France. It is the story of a pacifist Protestant pastor who broke laws and defied orders to protect the lives of total strangers.

    In the upper reaches of the Loire lies the secluded village of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon. The whole village was honoured not just by the French state but with the extremely rare distinction of being named Righteous Among Nations by the people of Israel. How they earned this is one of the great modern stories of heroism and courage. The community pulled off the astonishing feat of saving the lives of 5,000 men, women and children whose very existence was deemed unpalatable by the Nazi occupiers and their Vichy stooges.
