Lives Reclaimed

A Story of Rescue and Resistance in Nazi Germany

Mark Roseman

Metropolitan Books

  • From the celebrated historian of Nazi Germany, Mark Roseman, winner of the Wingate Prize and the Fraenkel Prize for previous works.
  • The story of a remarkable but completely unsung group that risked everything to help the most vulnerable.
  • Offers the most richly documented account ever of any rescue network and sheds unparalleled light on the choices, dilemmas, and dangers of acting under Nazi rule.
  • Explores the tensions between wartime experience and the way we have to come to think about rescue in later memory which challenges conventional ways of thinking and writing about rescue and the rescuer, and opens up new perspectives.
