Description - The Righteous by Sir Martin Gilbert

"As a researcher and collector of historical source material, Mr. Gilbert has no peer among contemporary historians." "The New York Times" According to Jewish tradition, "Whoever saves one life, it is as if he saved the entire world." In "The Righteous," distinguished historian Sir Martin Gilbert explores the courage of those who, throughout Germany and in every occupied country, took incredible risks to help Jews whose fate would have been sealed without them. Indeed, many lost their lives for their efforts.From Greek-Orthodox Princess Alice of Greece to the Ukrainian Uniate Archbishop of Lvov, from priests and soldiers to employees and neighbors, many risked, and sacrificed, everything to help their fellow man. Drawing from twenty-five years of original research, Gilbert re-creates the remarkable stories of the non-Jews who have received formal recognition by the State of Israel as Righteous Among the Nations."
