We have a busy fall 2017 publishing schedule... with three contrasting books.
Just published is a book we are delighted to have - the first english translation of Sebastian Steiger's remarkable account of The Children of Château de la Hille.
This all-new edition tells the extraordinary story of 25-year-old Steiger who came over the border from Switzerland to teach children escaping the Nazi's in an old château at the foot of the Pyrenees. There over 100 children grew up, played, scraped an existence against the odds and eventually escaped from occupied France. Their stories are remarkable.
"Spellbinding.... an extraordinary chronicle."
With over 50 photographs from the time, these stories come alive, with extracts from some of the kids' journals, and detailed lists of what happened to the children - spoiler alert, most survived!
