The Heart Has Reasons

by Mark Klempner, The Heart Has Reasons Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Heart Has Reasons book, "You can't let people be treated in an inhuman way around you....Otherwise you start to become inhuman." So declares rescuer Hetty Voute in this ebook of the updated edition of The Heart Has Reasons, an acclaimed historical account that offers an in-depth look into the hearts and minds of the Holocaust rescuers and explores the meaning that their lives and deeds have for us today. Individually or in small "humanitarian cells," the ten Dutch people profiled in these pages saved the lives of thousands of Jewish children during the Nazi occupation of Holland. How did they do what they did-and why did they risk everything to do it? Although their extraordinary tales of rescue vary greatly, the integrity of the rescuers does not. Thus these narratives provide not only a window on the past but a vision for the future. Framed by Klempner's own quest for meaning, the rescuers' words resonate across generations, providing timeless insight into how people of conscience can navigate ethically in an increasingly complex world.

Conscience And Courage

by Eva Fogelman, Conscience And Courage Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Conscience And Courage book, 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?

Holocaust Rescuers

by Cyrus J. Zachary, Holocaust Rescuers Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Holocaust Rescuers book, True Stories Of Brave Holocaust Rescuers Who Saved The Destitute Prisoners Of AuschwitzThe Second World War, was a classic example of how good and evil man can be - where Hitler and his men were doing every thing they could to destroy entire races, the Allied Powers of the world came together to fight and rescue the millions caught in the crossfire. Called Ho-Shoah in Hebrew, the Holocaust was, undoubtedly, the most painful and devastating man-made disaster the world has ever seen. In the simplest of terms, it was nothing more than a government sponsored murder trip, in which millions of innocent people lost their lives, simply because one believed - and taught - that his bloodline was better than the rest. From Jews to homosexuals, innumerable people died, their screams echoing through the silences we observe for them even today. In the concentration camps, there were tortures and horrific scientific experiments being conducted on the hapless and the innocent. And in those same concentration camps, there were a few who were quietly rebelling, trying to squirrel away as many lives as they could, trying to spirit them away to safety in the proverbial dead of the night. Some of them even lost their lives in such a noble pursuit; too many of them have been lost to the pages of history, their bravery and selflessness unknown but never truly forgotten. The Holocaust remains a stark reminder of how dark humanity can be. But it also reminds of how much light we can possess and how easily we can make an impact on someone's life. Given the chance, man has the ability to flip a switch and turn his entire being around - whether that flip, turns you into an angel or a demon is up to you to decide...

Unlikely Heroes

by Ari Kohen, Unlikely Heroes Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Unlikely Heroes book, Classes and books on the Holocaust often center on the experiences of victims, perpetrators, and bystanders, but rescuers also occupy a prominent space in Holocaust courses and literature even though incidents of rescue were relatively few and rescuers constituted less than 1 percent of the population in Nazi-occupied Europe. As inspiring figures and role models, rescuers challenge us to consider how we would act if we found ourselves in similarly perilous situations of grave moral import. Their stories speak to us and move us. Yet this was not always the case. Seventy years ago these brave men and women, today regarded as the Righteous Among the Nations, went largely unrecognized; indeed, sometimes they were even singled out for abuse from their co-nationals for their selfless actions. Unlikely Heroes traces the evolution of the humanitarian hero, looking at the ways in which historians, politicians, and filmmakers have treated individual rescuers like Raoul Wallenberg and Oskar Schindler, as well as the rescue efforts of humanitarian organizations. Contributors in this edited collection also explore classroom possibilities for dealing with the role of rescuers, at both the university and the secondary level.

Download Holocaust Rescuers book, True Holocaust Survivor Stories Of The Liberators Of Auschwitz: Accounts Of The Holocaust Rescuers Every so often, an event happens that yanks the reigns of the ever-churning machinery of time and stops the world in its tracks. The repercussions of such an event may send shock waves that can be felt in every nook and corner of our sphere. These events and happenings will vary in the actual magnitude, but their lasting effect can be immeasurable in the manner they influence humanity till posterity. Once such event for instance, was the Holocaust. During the course of which a staggering 11 million unarmed and helpless men, women and children were slaughtered mercilessly by the Nazis and their collaborators. And the most shocking and brutal fact was that this number included more than 6 million Jews. Suffice to say that the actions of the Nazis almost pushed the Jewish race to certain obliteration. The fundamental logic behind this inhuman eruption of atrocities was the unfounded and groundless notion of Aryan Supremacy. The Nazis believed that the Aryan race was the purest and the most superior race in the world. This book is a compilation of the heroic and poignant stories of such individuals, based on the true accounts of survivors of the Holocaust, whose courage, valor and compassion truly transcended the boundaries imposed by the tyranny of men. I thank you for purchasing this book and hope that it helps you appreciate to the fullest extent, one of the most significant pages of human history.

Claude Lanzmann S Shoah Outtakes

by Sue Vice, Claude Lanzmann S Shoah Outtakes Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Claude Lanzmann S Shoah Outtakes book, As we approach the end of the 'era of the witness', given the passing on of the generation of Holocaust survivors, Claude Lanzmann's archive of 220 hours of footage excluded from his ground-breaking documentary Shoah (1985) offers a remarkable opportunity to encounter previously unseen interviews with survivors and other witnesses, recorded in the late 1970s. Although the archive is all available freely to view online and includes extra footage of those who appear in Shoah, this book focuses on the interviews from which no extracts appear in the finished film or in any subsequent release. The material analysed features interviews with such significant figures as the former partisan Abba Kovner, wartime activist Hansi Brand, Kovno Ghetto leader Leib Garfunkel, rescuer Tadeusz Pankiewicz and members of Roosevelt's War Refugee Board, and focuses throughout on the efforts at rescue and resistance by those within and outside occupied Europe. Sue Vice contends that watching and analysing this wholly excluded footage gives us new insights into the making of Shoah through what was left out. Moreover, she reveals that the near-impossibility of rescue and often suicidal implications of resistance emerge through these excluded interviews as inextricable from the process of genocide. She concludes by arguing that the outtakes show the potential for new filmic forms envisaged on Lanzmann's part in order to represent the crucial topics of attempted Holocaust rescue and resistance.

The Path Of The Righteous

by Mordecai Paldiel, The Path Of The Righteous Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Path Of The Righteous book, The Path of The Righteous by Mordecai Paldiel recounts the inspiring stories of several hundred "Righteous Among the Nations" - heroic gentile men and women, in virtually all the countries of Nazi-occupied Europe, who put themselves and their families at risk in order to save the lives of Jews fleeing the Nazi terror. Drawn from the files of Yad Vashem Memorial in Israel, these stories are a badly needed corrective to the pessimistic view of human nature which has become all too common in the Holocaust's aftermath. They prove that decency, morality, and altruism can survive even under the most horrendous of circumstances, and that some people will always be willing to act selflessly. It also serves to disprove the cruel lie being promulgated by some that the Holocaust never took place, or did not take place as described in eye witness accounts. The courageous individuals whose tales are recounted in this book are monuments to the nobility of the human spirit. They did what they did not for the sake of reward or prestige, but because they believed it was right. Some of them were pious Christians motivated by religion. Others were energized by feelings of intense compassion. Neither the threat of punishment nor ostracism by relatives and neighbors deterred them. Love for their fellow human beings was a higher value. The book contains a foreword by Rabbi Harold Schulweis, founding chairman of the Jewish Foundation for Christian Rescuers/ADL, and an afterword by Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League and a Holocaust survivor who was saved by his Polish nursemaid, poignantly express their recognition of and gratitude to the untold numbers of righteous gentiles, many of whom will never be known by us.
