A powerful look at an unforgettable era in history
"If we take these children, we can never betray them, no matter what the Nazis do."
During the German occupation of France, 20 French children were brought to a refuge in the mountains. One day a young man came to their school with a request: Could they take in, and hide, 10 Jewish refugee children?
Sister Gabriel spoke up. "The Nazis are looking for those children. If we take them we must never let on they are here. Do you understand?"
Of course the children understood - but how would they hide them if the Nazis came?
