Orson Wells in Euskal Herria II

This is a segment of a documentary that Orson Wells produced about the Basque Country.

The segment shows a bit of the everyday life in Iparralde, the northern Basque Country. But pay attention to the last few minutes when it goes into the part that the Basques played in WWII, specially the very end when it describes how a young boy was tortured by the Nazis to obtain information about the boy's father who was in charge of smuggling Allied pilots, political dissidents and Jewish children into the southern Basque Country were they would be transferred to England.

I mention this because you will not find any information about this in the Yad Vashem nor the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
