Product Details

Praise

“The authors of Hidden on the Mountain: Stories of Children Sheltered from the Nazis in Le Chambon (Holiday House, 2007) return to France to uncover a little-known story. While they admit that ‘many of the details are destined to remain forever uncertain, with few facts proven to a historian’s satisfaction,’ Ruelle and DeSaix feel strongly that the bits and pieces of information that they were able to unearth provide convincing evidence that the Muslims of the Grand Mosque of Paris saved Jewish lives. . . .  this well-researched book belongs on the shelves of most libraries.”—School Library Journal

“The book begins with a quote found in Islamic and Jewish traditions: ‘Save one life, and it is as if you’ve saved all of humanity.’ . . . This is a fascinating, little-known piece of history (the afterword explains how difficult it was to research). . . . The evocative paintings in somber colors heighten the tension, but some, like the one of a Jewish girl in front of an intricately designed mosque wall, capture the hope.”—Booklist
