From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:10 pm on 16 July 2012

There are many untold stories of men and women who helped save souls from the German death camps. Retired Auckland University Physics professor, Alan Poletti came across one of those untold stories in the small Italian Town of Aprica, on the edge of the Swiss border. It was the story of how two priests helped 200 foreign jews escape across the mountains, along a treacherous path to safety in Switzerland.
