Heroes of the Holocaust
"German leader Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime killed more than 6 million Jews during World War II. Many of those who survived had courageous gentiles and Jews to thank. Heroes of the Holocaust tells the stories of those who defied and resisted the Nazis. Some helped one person or family, some saved dozens, and others organized efforts that helped thousands. Their combined courage helped stop Hitler from wiping out the entire European Jewish population."
