Lot-et-Garonne, terre d'exil, terre d'asile. Les réfugiés juifs pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale - Marie-Juliette Vielcazat-Petitcol

Relatively protected by its rural isolation, the French region of Lot-et-Garonne became, during the Second World War, the refuge for a significant number of Jews, the large majority of whom escaped deportation. By synthesising an analysis of administrative documents with more than 300 testimonies given by both survivors and those who helped to save them, the reader is able not only to understand the relentless course of the persecution of the Jews, but also to appreciate the acts of brave individuals to save them. This work is available from Editions d'Albret (4, rue Mandrina 40180 Narrosse).
