Do not listen to this nonsense. Instead, help Jews!
You must go and fix this mess.
On June of 1940, France falls into the hands of Germany. However, Germany did allow the French to set up a government in the city of Vichy, led by Philippe Petain. They had to comply with all German orders, including sending Jews to internment camps.
We do not want to listen to you!!!
Many sorrounding cities,nevertheless, did not follow these rules. A man, Andre Trochme rebelled against the pre-defined laws and preached for others not to follow these laws, including defending Jews.
To counteract his campaigns, Petain sends Lamirand to teach obedience to the townspeople.
My mom has given me the courage to continue on my endeavors.
When Lamirand reached Le Chambon-sur-Lingnon, he is met with an angry mob of people who do not exactly follow his views.
Trochme is arrested, yet he stubbornly denies to sign a paper that resigns his right to speak against the government.
Instead, he speaks of his mother's death and her impact on his life. When he saw her laying lifeless on the road from an accident, that is what gave him the courage to be as stubborn and courageous in the midst of trouble.
