Overview

The Holocaust was the widespread slaughter of more than 11 million people-including 6 million Jews-by the Nazis. The heroes of the Holocaust were individuals who risked their own lives, and those of their families, to save thousands of Jews from certain death. Rescuers hid Jews in their basements and attics, forged false identification papers, and even transported Jews across borders to save as many as possible from the Nazi death camps. Many rescue attempts failed, and turned would-be rescuers into victims of the Nazis. Author David K. Fremon recalls the bravery of rescuers who saved thousands from the horrors of the Holocaust.
