Product description

Review

Pastor Toureille was an energetic leader in the international effort to help war refugees, mostly Jewish, in defeated France after 1940. Tela Zasloff, in a labor of love, explores the moral dilemmas of charity within an evil tyranny and brings back the memory of Toureille himself in all his prickly and indomitable humanity. Robert O. Paxton, author of Vichy France"

Zasloff s skillful use of surviving records fills in the background of Vichy France s shameful collaboration with the Germans, and the dilemma of the Christian churches, torn between their loyalty to the French state and their humanitarian sympathies with those suffering at the Nazis hands. Congress Monthly"

A welcome contribution to the relatively small corpus of scholarship of Huguenot efforts to shield Jews from persecution during the Second World War. . . . Zasloff s biography of Pierre[-Charles] Toureille offers a [broad] view of official Protestant aid networks dedicated to helping refugees of all nationalities and religions. French Studies"
