Join us for a virtual First Friday event! What began as a literary research project became an unexpected rediscovery of identity and faith. In this haunting memoir, Sandell Morse uncovers long silenced stories of bravery and resistance among the civilians of a small town in France during WWII, and in doing so finds deeper meaning and understanding of her own Jewish heritage. This year that marks the 80th anniversary of the fall of France to Nazi Germany and the formation of the Vichy government whose ultimate goal was to deport all French Jews to extermination camps. The memoir hearkens back to this harrowing time as she gradually unearths long buried secrets of Jewish resistance against the Nazi occupiers, learning of the numerous accounts of bravery and selfless acts of those who chose to fight bigotry, oppression, and genocide.
