Description:New. During the darkest days of the Nazi occupation of France,...New. During the darkest days of the Nazi occupation of France, a miracle of human compassion occurred in the midst of what seemed a twilight of irrevocable barbarism. In a small French Protestant village of Le Chambon, clergy (among them Andre Trocme, later the author of Jesus and the Nonviolent Revolution) and villagers organized, in front of the noses of the Vichy government and with a division of Nazi SS nearby, to save the lives of thousands of Jewish children and adults from the certain death of the camps. ''If, as has often been alleged, our old ethics do not work well, the alternatives work worse. But what is stunning about the people of Le Chambon is that the old ethics worked perfectly for them. Its citizens attained in virtue the perfection that in artistic creation or performance we recognize as glamorous--magical, mystifying, romantic, alluring. The Chambonnais set new standards of excellence'' (Naomi Bliven, The New Yorker).
