Holocaust Rescuers Bibliography: Rescuers during the Holocaust

Whosoever saves a single life...

The Holocaust is a history of overwhelming horror and enduring sorrow. Sometimes it seems as though there is no spark of human concern or kindness, no act of humanity, to lighten that dark history. Yet there were acts of courage and kindness during the Holocaust that can offer us some solace about our past and hope for our future. Indeed, individuals such as Hetty Voûte, groups such as the Utrecht Kindercomité, and in the case of Denmark, almost an entire country, reached out.

People like Andre Trocmé, the minister and spiritual leader of the village of Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, probably fit most closely our stereotypes of those who will help. Trocmé was clearly motivated by ethical and religious convictions. Yet many others, who could have been expected to hold similar beliefs, failed to act. Less expected is an Oskar Schindler, the opportunistic businessman who made a fortune using Jewish slave labor—and spent that fortune again to save the lives of those in his factory. What did they have in common?

What was it that led some people to reach out and help others, while most of the population around them did not? What was it, about individuals and societies, that led them to act on behalf of strangers? Perhaps, if we can begin to answer these questions, we can start to build societies in which such actions are more likely to happen, and in which genocide is less likely to occur.


The following bibliography lists hundreds of works (mostly in English) that discuss the lives and actions of rescuers during the Holocaust. Many entries include a link to enable the user to obtain more information about a particular title.

These bibliographies were orignally compiled by Mary Mark, who maintained them until November 2000.  Since then, they have been maintained by Mark Klempner. Links are chosen based on the quality and quantity of information they provide. If you know of better links, or have other suggestions, corrections, or addtions, please contact Mark.
