5.0 out of 5 stars an intimate view of the Holocust rescuers, 17 Dec. 2006
By 
This review is from: The Heart Has Reasons: Holocaust Rescuers and Their Stories of Courage (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed this book, but it feels strange to say so. How can someone enjoy reading about such a tragic time in history? I think I enjoyed it because it contains so many moving stories of humanity and survival. It is really uplifting to read of the lengths to which ordinary people went to help strangers. I also liked the way the book made me feel as if I got to know each one of the rescuers intimately, as if, should I pass one of them on the street, I would feel natural going up to him or her as to an old friend. The book really made me think of the sacrifice that some people made. It's difficult to get that out of a movie because you see the characters for a couple hours on the screen, and then it's over. This book made me realize they are real people who, day after day, risked their lives to help others, and the war went on for years. And then for years afterwards they were affected by what they did--for their entire lives, actually--in all kinds of ways.
