Authors: Bill Tammeus and Rabbi Jacques Cukierkorn traveled extensively in the U.S.A. and Poland to interview some of the few remaining Polish Holocaust survivors and their rescuers. These gripping narratives of Jews who survived against all odds and courageous non-Jews who risked their own lives to provide shelter show that even in an atmosphere of unimaginable malevolence, individuals can decide to act in civilized ways. The accounts include the perspectives of men and women, city and rural residents, clergy and laypersons even children who witnessed their parents efforts.
