Film Screening of Weapons of the Spirit

Event information
Venue:MMC-GL 220

The Center for the Humanities will feature a screening of Pierre Sauvage's film which shows the inhabitants of the small protestant village of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon as they provided a safe haven throughout the war for whoever knocked on their door. Led by their pastor, Andre Trocme, the villagers, most of them descendants of Huguenots, helped save the lives of nearly 5,000 Jewish people.
