Magda Trocme

"Singly and in groups, they saw a need, found an opportunity, and acted. When a stranger knocked on the door of her home in theFrench village of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, Magda Trocmé’s response was reflexive. This pastor’s wife listened to a bedraggled stranger ex plain that she was in danger. She was a German Jew coming from northern France, and had no place to go. Could she come in? “Naturally, come in, come in,” was Trocmé’s unhesitating reply."
