The Jews who managed to cross the Pyrenees took part in epic acts of evasion after fleeing persecution in Nazi-occupied France. Their life histories bear witness to the horrors experienced in interwar Europe and to the consequences that these barbaric acts had for millions of families. They show the role that the Lleida Pyrenees played as a place of refuge and salvation and also highlight the support and solidarity that the inhabitants of the frontier comarques (local districts) gave to these people. Here, we present the stories of some of the families who managed to reach freedom via the Lleida Pyrenees and the testimonies of people who experienced the mountain crossing at first hand.
