Village of Scoundrels

We rated this book:


During WWII the German’s had started taking over other countries in parts of Europe, as people escaped the Germans they moved to safer towns and villages to be safe. Les Lauzes is a small village in a remote part of France, since it was far away the Germans had not come to the town in 1942 and the town had become a safe place for people who had escaped the Germans. Most of the people who have come to Les Lauzes are children, they live in boarding houses and go to school, there are both Jewish and non-Jewish refugees. The kids are also working with the resistance against the Germans. Everything in Les Lauzes changes in the Spring of 1943 when German officers come to Les Lauzes and start to realize that the citizens of the village may be going against the Germans.

Reading about the role of young people during a time like WWII was very interesting, it helps to show you that if you believe strongly in something that you can be an important part even if you think you are too young. It was interesting to learn about each character, their history, what brought them to Les Lauzes, and what their role in the resistance is.
