France, 1940. The once glittering boulevards of Paris teem with
spies, collaborators, and the Gestapo now that France has fallen to
Hitler's Wermacht. For Andre Breton, Max Ernst, Marc Chagall,
Consuelo de Saint-Exupery, and scores of other cultural elite who
have been denounced as enemies of the Third Reich the fear of
imminent arrest, deportation, and death defines their daily life.
Their only salvation is the Villa Air-Bel, a chateau outside
Marseille where a group of young people will go to extraordinary
lengths to keep them alive.
A powerfully told, meticulously researched true story filled
with suspense, drama, and intrigue, "Villa Air-Bel" delves into a
fascinating albeit hidden saga in our recent history. It is a
remarkable account of how a diverse intelligentsia--intense,
brilliant, and utterly terrified--was able to survive one of the
darkest chapters of the twentieth century.
