More > villages, the descendants of the Cathars and the Vaudois had been living quietly and were among the first to join the new churches. But challenging the spiritual, and in some cases the secular, power of Rome wasn’t without danger; soon the “heretics” were being persecuted, harassed and burned with their seditious books. As the French Kings sided with the Pope, a culture of resistance developed and has remained to these days. Richard Maltby, Professor of History at King’s School in Canterbury shows the clear link and shared ideas between the Huguenots who fought Louis XIVth and their descendants who hid Jewish children and fought nazi occupation forces. His well illustrated book guides us through the villages, towns and hideouts of the Huguenots.< Less

In 1942 Maisie Renault and her sister were arrested by the Gestapo for their work with the French Resistance. They were eventually deported to the Ravensbrück concentration camp in Germany,... More > housing mainly women and children. The camp included a crematorium and a gas chamber, and was operated by the SS for profit, with inmates leased out to industries as slave labor, and used as subjects for medical experiments. By the war's end it held more than 30,000 prisoners. La grande misère is Maisie Renault's story of her nine months in this man-made hell, where brutality, starvation, sickness, filth, and degradation took a daily toll on women whose main offense was having opposed the Nazis. Maisie's story is one of loyalty, devotion, faith, endurance, and the loving and self-sacrificing support that the women gave each other, allowing some to survive the horribly cruel conditions and to testify what they saw. Jeanne Armstrong provides the first English translation of this gripping narrative.< Less
