The Grand Mosque of Paris : a story of how Muslims saved Jews during the Holocaust / by Karen Gray Ruelle and Deborah Durland DeSaix.

Publication | Library Call Number: D804.65 .R84 2008

During the Nazi occupation of Paris, no Jew was safe from arrest and deportation to a concentration camp. Few Parisians were willing to risk their own lives to help. Yet many Jews found refuge in an unlikely place, the sprawling complex of the Grand Mosque of Paris. Not just a place of worship but also a community center, this hive of activity was an ideal temporary hiding place for escaped prisoners of war and Jews of all ages, including children.
