Abstract:

Describes rescue activities by two nuns, Denise Bergon and Marguerite Roques, at a convent in Massip, Aveyron, between December 1942-July 1944. The two hid 84 Jews, 70 of them children. The latter included the author's mother and aunt, Jeannine and Denise Markx (Marc), who arrived at the convent in March 1944. Discusses, also, the role of the Archbishop of Toulouse, Jules Géraud Saliège, in setting up the Garel network for the rescue of Jewish children, together with the Oeuvre de Secours aux Enfants. Notes that the two nuns were influenced by Saliège's protest in August 1942 against deportations of Jews from the camps of Noé and Récébédou, and by his appeal for Christian compassion. Many of the children hidden in the convent converted to Catholicism, though they were not forced to do so. Includes interviews with Bergon and Roques, as well as testimonies of some of the hidden children. Sisters Bergon and Roques have been recognized as Righteous among the Nations by Yad Vashem.
