The town of Le Chambon sur Lignon in the South of France.
Many Jews were hidden and rescued in this town at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains. The rescue campaign was directed by a Protestant pastor, Andre Trocme, and his wife Magda. The town as a body was awarded the designation of "Righteous among the Nations".
"Righteous Among the Nations" is the title awarded to non - Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.
