This is a documentary directed and edited by Lisa Gossels and Dean Wetherell, originally produced in 1999.
The film reveals the untold story of how the people in a tiny village in unoccupied France chose action over indifference to save the lives of 400 Jewish refugee children.
It also shows the remarkable efforts made by the citizens of Chabannes who risked their lives and livelihoods to protect these children, simply because they felt it was the right thing to do.
It is a gripping and heart-warming documentary.

a poignant 1999 doc about French Jews and non-Jews saving the lives of Jewish refugee children from the Vichy government and the Nazis. much of the story is told by the survivors who gathered for a reunion in 1996. a story with many happy endings midst the horrors of WW2.
