The Emmy® Award-winning The Children of Chabannes of Lisa Gossels and Dean Wetherell is the story of how the people in a tiny French village chose action over indifference, and risked their lives and livelihoods, to save more than 400 Jewish refugee children during World War Il. The Children of Chabannes is not only a story about the past. It’s an exploration of moral courage and goodness in the face of evil: of what motivates individuals to take a stand against injustice, bigotry and extremism. As the world is facing the largest refugee crisis since World War II and an unjust war in Ukraine, the film has profound relevance today. 

One of the most heartening Holocaust films ever made – splendid, informative and emotionally involving.”– Los Angeles Times
