Description - Among the Righteous by Robert Satloff
Thousands of people have been honored for saving Jews during the Holocaust-but not a single Arab. Looking for a hopeful response to the plague of Holocaust denial sweeping across the Arab and Muslim worlds, Robert Satloff sets off on a quest to find the Arab hero whose story will change the way Arabs view Jews, themselves, and their own history. The story of the Holocausts long reach into the Arab world is difficult to uncover. Surprisingly, more than sixty years after the end of the war, few people-Arab and Jew-want this story told. We follow Satloff over four years, through eleven countries, from the barren wasteland of the Sahara, where thousands of Jews were imprisoned in labor camps; through the archways of the Mosque in Paris, which may once have hidden 1,700 Jews; to the living rooms of octogenarians in London, Paris, and Tunis.
