This is a great collection of examples of humanity in times of trial Those who risked livelihoods and lives to save their fellow human beings from terror these Brits are examples of the best in humanity It was interesting to see how people from a nation that was never invaded by ground troops but was hammered from the sky put themselves at risk for others not of their own nationMost of the people detailed in this book I was familiar with from reading on Righteous Gentiles before that were recognized by Yad Vashem I liked this volume however as it collected people from one nation into one work and some of which were not recognized by Yad Vashem for whatever reason These are people that were recognized by Britain with their own Heroes of the Holocaust medalFrom diplomatic halls to occupied British soil to the very bowels of Auschwitz itself this work covers a wide range of rescue and its arenas It shines a light on people who would have most likely stayed ordinary under regular circumstances; but with tyranny and evil taking power they became saviors and people of incredible bravery I think that’s why I like reading about those who rescued others during the Holocaust It brings light to how ordinary people can make a difference and be such a bright light of humanity amongst such inhumanityI liked how the author presented the information as well Nonfiction works that present their information in personal story format with each chapter being a different person’s story is something I love It makes the information very easy to digest each chapter being one person’s story Not a format that works for all non fiction it works great for works like this telling us about multiple people over one broad theme It also makes it very readable giving it readability to a wider audience and even the casual reader who might not look at a non fiction otherwiseI personally loved this work It presents a lot of information in a format that makes it readable by a wide audience reaching people with stories that relate in the modern age and give us examples of how even the ordinary can make a difference Definitely recommended

The moving stories of  ordinary people who were awarded the Heroes of the Holocaust medal for their actions protecting Jews from Nazi persecutionIn March   Britons who took matters into their own hands to protect Jews from the Nazis during one of the darkest times in human history were formally recognized as Heroes of the Holocaust by the British Government The silver medal inscribed with the words In the Service of Humanity was. In 2010 Britain made a very belated official recognition of the lifesaving efforts made by a small number of its citizens in the face of the Nazi killing machine 27 Britons were named Heroes of the Holocaust and awarded medals many posthumously for their service to humanity during one of its darkest times This book tells their widely varying stories from the Berlin embassy man who went to huge lengths to ensure the pre war exit of up to 10000 Jewish people to safety to the mother raising her family in Nazi occupied Holland who sheltered a Jewish youth sent to her by the local Resistance By its very nature this is not an easy read yet it reinforces my belief that where there is evil there is also goodness to be found Most of all it leaves one thinking What would I do

Heroes of the HolocaustEat humanity in the face of horrendous cruelty and suffering All the recipients of the award were ordinary people acting on no one's authority but their own who found they could not stand idly by in the face of this great evil Collected here for the first time are the remarkable stories of the medal's recipients a moving testament to the bravery of those whose inspiring actions stand out in stark relief at a time of such horror. A good read although for me I would have preferred it to read like personal stories than as facts but then again some of these stories are about people who have already passed away and so they can't be put in the persons own words I think it's an excellent book if you haven't already read many books on the Holocaust but for me I felt I was re reading things I already know again not really the fault of this book but about the time in which I read it I had read the full book of the man who broke into Auschwitz already so that was just a repeated reading section for me I do think though that it's a great book in so much as it highlights some of the unsung heroes of the Holocaustpeople whose names aren't maybe known worldwide but who played a part in saving liveswhether it was just one life or many and that is to be greatly admired
