A Corsican history teacher has shattered a local myth by showing that one single Jew was indeed deported from the island during the Second World War and sent to his death.For more than 60 years, the people of Corsica have prided themselves on the fact that no Jews were deported during Corsica’s occupation by German and Italian forces. This extraordinary record is usually attributed to vigilance of the island’s wartime prefect, Paul Balley, who protected Jews on the island from being sent to the camps.
