Feuilles de Nuit written by Claude Zenatti Complete version in French available at http://www.lulu.com/shop/view-cart.ep
Part 2 tells the story of eleven year old Claude and his family as they escape the grasp of the Gestapo and Vichy police. Four of the people were awarded Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem, the Memorial of the Shoah in Jerusalem. First was Céline Morali who provided refuge and arranged transportation out of the Occupied Zone of Paris travelling SE to cross the border line at Chalons sur Saôme. Then there was Sister Suzanne (née Simone Bondurand) a Dominican nurse in the Diocese of Albi who befriended and protected the family. The bishop of Albi, Mgr. Joseph Moussaron provided spiritual support and refuge in his diocese for many Jews including the Zenatti family. And Canon Raoul Manen, Headmaster of the St. Etienne seminary, where Claude was enrolled under the false name of Grange and completed his Baccalaureate at age fifteen. Claude pays homage for the great risk they took for the Zenatti family by telling their stories. This autobiography is a page turner for those interested in rescue and resistance during the Second World War, and students studying the lives of the Righteous Among the Nations--Les Justes.
