Reviews

"Paldiel's book includes remarkable stories of remarkable people."--Tammy Mark, Jewish Link of New Jersey-- (8/3/2017 12:00:00 AM)
"The first of its kind . . . Saving One's Own is very important because it illustrates the resilience of people in Nazi-occupied Europe and dispels the myth of Jewish passivity during the Holocaust. Thoroughly researched, exciting, and engaging."--Samuel P. Oliner, author of The Altruistic Personality and The Nature of Good and Evil

"Mordecai Paldiel has encyclopedic knowledge of the subject. . . . Country by country, virtually institution by institution, he looks at ways in which Jews rescued Jews. Strongly recommended."--Michael Berenbaum, scholar, author, filmmaker, and former project director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum -- (9/9/2016 12:00:00 AM)
