Quote of the Day

We feel obliged to tell you that there are among us a certain number of Jews. But, we make no distinction between Jews and non-Jews. It is contrary to the Gospel teaching.

If our comrades, whose only fault is to be born in another religion, received the order to let themselves be deported,, or even examined, they would disobey the order received, and we would try to hide them as best we could.

We have Jews. You're not getting them.

- From a letter presented by students in the town of Le Chambon, France to the Vichy minister in charge of youth affairs in 1942
