Le Chambon: Village saved thousands of WWII Jews

11 June 2013 Last updated at 14:04 BST

A small French village which saved thousands of Jewish people and refugees from the Nazis has opened a museum dedicated to its wartime secret.

Le Chambon, high in the mountains near Lyon, had a tradition of sheltering refugees from persecution even before the war, and during the conflict it became a centre for those trying to escape.

Robert Hall reports from Le Chambon.
