Although this book is intended mainly for a teen audience, readers of any age will find it an informative (and appalling) summary of many of the heroic activities undertaken by people of many nationalities who chose to resist the efforts of the Nazis to exterminate European Jewry (plus Gypsies, homosexuals, the physically and mentally challenged, political opponents, all the Slavic people, and anyone else they decided was unfit to share the planet with the superior Aryan Race). There is an extensive bibliography plus a helpful list of websites for anyone who would like to do further reading or research. highly recommended.

The Nazis did their best to destroy all Jews, but both Jews and non-Jews fought back, doing their best to thwart the Nazis. Here are accounts of those who used their courage, ingenuity, and resolve to save others—or die trying. Illus. with photos.
