Heroes of the Holocaust - Allan Zullo and Mara Bovsun
The subtitle of this book is True Stories of Rescues by Teens and that sums it up well - it's a collection of stories about ordinary European teenagers who risked their lives helping Jewish people during World War II. It's a nice testament to the idea that one person can make a difference. Aimed at young readers, this book would be great for a student who had just read Anne Frank's diary, or learned about the Holocaust, and wanted to know more. Recommended.
