12/21/2010 Bonjour Minnesota

 

Tonight's program features Nelly Trocme Hewett, daughter of a Huguenot pastor during World War II. Pastor Andre Trocme opposed war and Hitler's brutal genocide. Andre Trocme was a brillant writer with quick wit and humor. His Christmas stories appeared to be for children, at first glance, but were equally important for adults.

You will hear the stories first in English, and then in French, read by his daughter, Nelly. The program will also contain many French Christmas carols.
