Fr. Pierre Chaillet, S.J. A Leading Figure In The Resistance

Jesuit Father Pierre Chaillet, hero of the French resistance and the publisher of an underground newspaper, used to haunt the street of Lyons and countryside looking for abandoned children.
During one search, he found four children huddling in a cave and led them to a monastery,
where several hundred other refugees were being housed. He also rescued 30 Jewish children from French police stations, where they were being held for questioning.
