A timely look at history

The story of Le Chambon is a timely story of the power of non-violence particularly appropriate in this tumultuous time. To learn of how an entire town in southern France saved thousands of Jews during World War II through peaceful protest is truly inspiring. And for me this podcast is particularly gratifying since my father Philip Hallie wrote the book Lest Innocent Blood Be Shed in the 1970s which helped bring this story to light. The podcast brings the story to the current time.
