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

In 2013, Humanity in Action published Civil Society and the Holocaust: International Perspectives on Resistance and Rescue. The essays in this anthology examine how European countries and the United States responded to the Holocaust.

This publication was created as part of “Civil Society: Reactions to the Holocaust,” a series of events in Copenhagen commemorating the 70th anniversary of the flight and deportation of Danish Jews in October 1943.

In the spirit of Humanity in Action programs and conferences, the essays in this volume draw lessons from past atrocities in order to strengthen the protection of minorities today. In furtherance of this goal, the essays seek to identify the responsibilities of the individual and civil society, and the power of collective action.
