    I have been reading several books about the history of Italy during WW II and saw this book at my local library The author has done her research using primary sources and writes a compelling story It is a time in history that I am trying to understand and it was good to meet and learn of this remarkable man , Pere Marie Benoit.

    This is an inspiring story A priest who has taken of vow of poverty and obedience still manages to help save thousands of Jews and non Jews during the Holocaust Well written and very thoroughly researched, the author brought this story to life and made the reader identify with Pere Marie Benoit from page one.
