PDF î BOOK Heroes of the Holocaust ¶ LYN SMITH ¶ ❰Epub❯ ➝ Heroes of the Holocaust Author Lyn Smith – Horticulturetrader.co.uk The moving stories of 27 ordinary people who were awarded the Heroes of the Holocaust medal for their actions protecting Jews from Nazi persecutionIn March 2010 27 BritonAnity was created to acknowledge those whose selfless actions preserved life in the face of persecution Some of the recipients like Frank Foley a British spy whose cover was working at the British embassy in Berlin took huge risks issuing forged visas to enable around 10000 Jews to escape Germany before the outbreak of war Others like the 10 POWs who hid and cared for Hannah Sarah Rigler as she escaped from a death march showed g 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

EPUB Ý Heroes of the Holocaust ☆ Lyn Smith

Reat 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 horr Hero of the Holocaust is an award given to Brits who went above and beyond to help rescue victims of the Holocaust In this book Lyn Smith gives short biographies of each of the people who have been honored with this award so far especially outlining what they did to receive this merit Some of the heroes did not keep diaries or have parts of their ordeals that have slipped into anonymity so Smith fills in the gaps by relating what other people in similar time and situation experienced Woven throughout is an outline of what was going on during WWII in Europe to provide background the book is arranged chronologically by when the people were active in their heroic actsThis was a very inspiring read The heroes are from uite varied backgrounds but they all share the guts to help fellow humans regardless to what it might cost themselves Sometimes the flow of the stories lags a little when Smith has to fill in gaps with other narratives and explanations but for the most part it is an engaging and worthwhile read I'd highly recommendNotes on content There are a few mild swear words that appear very occasionally in uotes Also some derogatory terms related in stories In the last story people mention several rapes that happened These are not described in any detail it is just stated that they happened No sexual content beyond that Relating stories of the Holocaust and WWII there is obviously a LOT of violence involved
