RESCUERS: Portraits of Moral Courage in the Holocaust

From 1939 to 1945 the Nazis murdered six million European
Jews, an unbearable truth that marks the darkest period of modern
history. Decades later, the world is ready to look through the
tragedy of those years to see some light. Photographer Gay Block
and writer Malka Drucker spent three years photographing and
interviewing over 100 people who hid, protected, and saved Jews in
Europe during World War II.

Rescuers cannot easily explain why they had the strength to act
righteously, nor do their life stories always off er a clue. History gives
no promises, but rescuers off er hope, revealing that goodness is,
indeed, part of the human spirit.
