Le Chambon: Village saved thousands of WWII Jews
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.
