The Children of Chabannes
This uplifting documentary that premiered on HBO recounts a small miracle in the midst of sweeping tragedy. Between 1939 and '42, more than 400 Jewish children were given sanctuary at Château de Chabannes, a school in an outlying region of France. The dedication and courageous efforts of school director Felix Chevrier, educators and a Jewish rescue group saved all but six of the young refugees from Nazi concentration camps and almost certain death.
