Basque Poppies: Survival Under the Swastika
By: Francine Kosla
About the Book
A STORY OF SURVIVAL UNDER THE SWASTIKA
Based on true accounts of a French Basque family
Joseph Vienney, his wife and teenaged daughters were patiently resigned to wait out the German occupation until conscience, opportunity and the enemy arrived at their door. Shackled by the Nazis living under his own roof, Joseph engineered one of the most ingenious missions of WW II. But unless he could flawlessly choreograph events, the reprisals against the Basque population could only result in its genocide.
"Unendurable terror and despair tempered by quirky customs, humor and true honor defined."
