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 Nazioccupied 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.

"There are no Rambo-style heroics here, just short accounts of quiet bravery. It is an inspiring testimonial."

--The San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle

‘A companion to Never to Forget, this is the story of those gentiles who sought to rescue their Jewish neighbors from annihilation during World War II. Succeeding chapters describe the efforts of Germans, Poles, Danes, and others to save Jewish friends and strangers from the Nazis. A story that needs telling." 'SLJ.

From Publishers Weekly:

This successor to Never to Forget: The Jews of the Holocaust presents a little-known side of history. PW said, "The most remarkable aspect of this book, aside from the array of astonishing facts, is Meltzer's clear sense of perspective. This is a calm book (about extreme events) that lifts the spirit." Ages 12-up.
