9781859731079: Refusing Nazi Orders to Kill: Germans in Uniform Who Resisted the Holocaust

What happened to Germans who refused to obey Nazi orders to kill unarmed civilians and POWs? Offering a fresh perspective on opposition by Germans to the mass murders of the Nazi Reich, this text describes the humanitarian responses of those who dared to disobey the order to kill. Based on extensive research and personal accounts from objectors, the book provides insights into the motives for refusal, evasive strategies and their consequences. The author reveals that not one German was shot for refusing to kill. The book also considers the resistance efforts by German citizens such as Oskar Schindler, who endangered his own life by helping Jews and other victims of the Third Reich.
