When Light Pierced the Darkness

Christian Rescue of Jews in Nazi-Occupied Poland

Nechama Tec

Based on case histories of over five-hundred Polish Christians who risked their lives for persecuted Jews, Tec--herself a survivor helped by Poles--vividly recreates the experiences of both the rescuers and the rescued in order to preserve for posterity the heroism of these people and fill a significant gap in our knowledge of the Holocaust.
