Fred Coleman presents The Marcel Network: How One French Couple Saved 527 Children from the Holocaust ($27.50). Syrian immigrant Moussa Abadi was thirty-three and his future wife, Odette Rosenstock, twenty-eight when they decided to hide Jewish children in Catholic convents and boarding schools or with Protestant families. Their clandestine organization—the Marcel Network—became one of the most successful operations of Jewish resistance in Europe.  Fred Coleman’s long career as a foreign correspondent included five years as Newsweek’s bureau chief in Paris and eight years as the magazine’s bureau chief in Moscow. In 1978 he won the Page 1 Award of the Newspaper Guild of New York for the best reporting from abroad for magazines. His first book, The Decline and Fall of the Soviet Empire, was published ’in 1996. Coleman and his wife, Nadine, live in Paris.
