The Other Schindlers
Why Some People Chose To Save Jews In The Holocaust
Sobre o livro
Thanks to Thomas Keneally's book Schindler's Ark, and the film based on it, Schindler's List, we have become more aware of the fact that, in the midst of Hitler's extermination of the Jews, courage and humanity could still overcome evil.
In this book, you'll find the stories of those righteous heroes who decided to help people in need during Second World War. Many of them were not understood and they were punished by the governments of their countries.Notwithstanding the treatment many of these heroes were given and the ignorance and unkindness they had to face, their noble acts remain and this book reflects upon this simple question: why, in a period of great ruthlessness and cruelty, some people risked their own lives and fortunes to help saving jews and other proscribed citizens.
