RESCUERS has been made into a three-part mini-series which airs on Showtime in October 1997, May 1998 and Fall 1998. Produced by Barbra Streisand and Cis Corman, the October film features actresses Elizabeth Perkins and Sela Ward as single women who acted alone to save Jewish lives.From Library Journal:
A welcome addition to Holocaust literature, this work presents a series of 49 personal reminiscences of non-Jewish citizens in various European nations who risked their lives to hide resident Jews from the Nazi horror. Most of those interviewed felt their actions were done out of friendship and for people caught in a web of hatred and anti-Semitism. They did not feel that they were acting heroically but that they were doing what was right. Portraits by Block of each of the rescuers accompany the text. These 49 are representative of the 9,295 rescuers honored at the Yad Vashem in Israel. This is recommended for general readers as well as for college and university libraries.
