Great addition to the library

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-03-03) Very Good Permalink

A chilling illustrated account of how Jewish people were hidden in a Muslin mosque in Paris duirng the Nazi occupation of France.  It would a great source for showing how research for a publication is done.  The bibliography is very detailed.
