This little known story focuses on how the Grand Mosque of Paris became a refugee point to help many Jews and resistance fighters. The book does a good job of describing the means that refugees were protected against the Nazi. A very interesting afterward points to the difficulty in documenting this story as even many of those that were helped may not have known where they were hidden. It is a useful story to reflect on when so many in these times when claim that certain enmity between peoples has always existed.
