A superb documentary which recounts how in one small corner of Occupied France, 5,000 Jews were sheltered by an equal number of Christians despite Nazi threats of punishment for doing so. Interviews of villagers and peasants and archived news reel footage recreate the history of Le Chambon -- the town with a tradition for helping “guests in need” in the midst of terror and death.
