"...of undeniable importance, movingly described." -Elie Wiesel, Nobel LaureateA book of scope and power, Heroes of the Holocaust tells of ordinary people who confronted the brutality of the holocaust with acts of unselfish courage. Among these are: a Jewish family saved by personal intervention by a German general; a ship's captain who dumped his cargo to make room for 600 Jews; and a father, grieving over the sudden death of his only son, who gave his child's name and identity papers to a Jewish boy in order to save the child's life. These moving stories reveal points of light amidst the horror of the Holocaust, to offer tales of inspiration and hope.
