About this title


Updated 2nd edition!
"You can't let people be treated in an inhuman way around you....Otherwise you start to become inhuman." So declares rescuer Hetty Voûte in this updated edition of The Heart Has Reasons, an acclaimed historical account that offers an in-depth look into the hearts and minds of the Holocaust rescuers and explores the meaning that their lives and deeds have for us today. Individually or in small "humanitarian cells," the ten Dutch people profiled in these pages saved the lives of thousands of Jewish children during the Nazi occupation of Holland. How did they do what they did-and why did they risk everything to do it? Although their extraordinary tales of rescue vary greatly, the integrity of the rescuers does not. Thus these narratives provide not only a window on the past but a vision for the future. Framed by Klempner's own quest for meaning, the rescuers' words resonate across generations, providing timeless insight into how people of conscience can navigate ethically in an increasingly complex world.

From the Author:

This is an updated edition of The Heart Has Reasons: Holocaust Rescuers and Their Stories of Courage (ISBN 978-0829816990) which came out in 2006. Since the book's original publication, I have continued to talk with and think about the rescuers and have incorporated some additional information and insights into this new edition. I have also sharpened, tightened, and in some cases, improved the text. Several astute Dutch readers have pointed out minor errors, which I have corrected. Finally, I have added twelve new photographs, and updated the epilogue.
