Civil Society and the Holocaust: International Perspectives on Resistance and Rescue

In 2013, Humanity in Action Denmark held a conference in Copenhagen to mark the 70th anniversary of the flight and rescue of Danish Jewry. This book was published in association with the “October 1943” conference. The anthology examines how European societies dealt with the knowledge of the Nazi persecution of Jews in very different ways before, during and after the Holocaust. The volume features contributions from distinguished journalists and scholars, including Richard Breitman and Annette Wieviorka, who explore the actions and inactions of different groups during the Second World War. The essays highlight responses to the Holocaust in Paris, Berlin, Washington and elsewhere. This anthology is also available in Danish.
