9780064461177: Rescue: The Story of How Gentiles Saved Jews in the Holocaust

Between the years 1933 and 1945, Adolf Hitler organized the murder of six million Jews while the world looked on silently. But not all people stood back in fear. In every Nazi-occupied country, at every level of society, there were non-Jews who had the courage to resist. From the king of Denmark, refusing to force Jewish Danes to wear yellow stars, to the Dutch student, registering Jewish babies as Gentiles and hiding children in her home, a small number of people had the strength to reject the inhumanity they were ordered to support.

Here are their stories: thrilling, terrifying, and most of all, inspiring. For in the horror that was the Holocaust, some human decency could still shine through.
