Superb, meticulously-researched account of the bravery of ordinary people
on 6 April 2016
The author claims to be telling the real story and not the myth, but the truth is totally compelling. Of course there was more than one village involved and not everyone they helped survived but what the residents of the plateau did was brave and remarkable. Pastor Andre Trocme comes over as principled and stubborn, with the ability to organise and motivate others. These are the qualities needed in perilous situations and if he wasn't a saint it doesn't matter because he (together with fellow Protestants, Jews and Catholics) helped to save countless lives.
