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?
