This is a classroom version of Pierre Sauvage's feature-length documentary. During World War II, Sauvage and his family were hidden in the French village of Le Chambon. The Chambonnaise people who hid them were descendants of the Huguenots, a small Protestant minority in France who had settled in the area to avoid persecution by the Catholic monarchy. A central figure in the film is Pastor Andre Trocme who came to the village in 1934. Trocme and the people of Le Chambon saved approximately 5,000 Jewish adults and children during the war.
