Product Description

This book is a study of altruism during the Holocaust. The author and her staff interviewed more than 300 rescuers in North America, Israel and various European nations and confirmed each rescuer's recollections by interviewing the Jews they saved or checking it against archival material. Their goal in this was to find the motivation behind alturism. Why did these people defy authority and put themselves at risk to act humanely? It is also hoped that by recording these stories and studying them, these acts of compassion will never be forgotten and they will be repeated, again, and again.

Publisher's Description

In this brilliantly researched and insightful  book, psychologist Eva Fogelman presents compelling  stories of rescuers of Jews during the  Holocaust--and offers a revealing analysis of their  motivations. Based on her extensive experience as a  therapist treating Jewish survivors of the Holocaust and  those who helped them, Fogelman delves into the  psychology of altruism, illuminating why these  rescuers chose to act while others simply stood by.  While analyzing motivations, Conscience And  Courage tells the stories of such  little-known individuals as Stefnaia Podgorska  Burzminska, a Polish teenager who hid thirteen Jews in her  home; Alexander Roslan, a dealer in the black  market who kept uprooting his family to shelter three  Jewish children in his care, as well as more  heralded individuals such as Oskar Schindler, Raoul  Wallenberg, and Miep Gies. Speaking to the same  audience that flocked to Steven Spielberg's Academy  Award-winning movie, Schindler's  List, Conscience And Courage is the  first book to go beyond the stories to answer the  question: Why did they  help?

Editorial Reviews

"By  evoking the noble along with the horrible, Ms.  Fogelman helps to add a dimension to our  understanding of the Holocaust. And, more than that, hers is  a work of remembrance." --The New  York Times Book Review
