One Day in France : Tragedy and Betrayal in an Occupied Village Hardback

Description

April 6, 1944. A detachment of German soldiers arrive in a rural French town, hunting down resistance fighters, many of whom are hiding in the region.

More than sixty years later, the villagers clearly remember the day when four peasants from a nearby village were taken hostage and shot as an example to others.

But do they remember the whole story? Jean-Marie Borzeix sets out to investigate the events of Holy Thursday 1944, and to reveal the hidden truths of that fateful day.

He uncovers the story of a mysterious 'fifth man' shot alongside the resisters and eventually unravels a trail which leads him to Paris, Israel and into the darkest corners of the Holocaust in France.

A captivating story, the events of this day in a small, entirely typical, town illuminate the true impact of World War II in France.
