In 1942, Lucian Bernard, an architect in war torn Paris, accepts a job that will bring him a lot of money.  He is asked to design a hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man.  He must design a place that will never be found by the Gestapo.   Needing the money, he takes the job.   The job proves to be a real challenge and lives depend on him.  One hiding place leads to many more rescues. Bernard also becomes the main architect for the German Reich in Paris and he is asked to design factories to make munitions for the war effort.   Bernard struggles to make sense of it all and how can he do his part to save his beloved city of Paris.  

I enjoyed the book,  Another look at what people did in terrible times to live and help those in need.
