5.0 out of 5 stars A tribute to morality in the face of persecution, 20 Jun 2010
This review is from: The Other Schindlers: Why Some People Chose to Save Jews in the Holocaust (Hardcover)
A thoroughly researched and candid approach to a fundamental question of society: "Are we equally responsible for the consequences of our in-action, as we are for those of our actions?"

This book recollects acts of great personal sacrifice in a time when it was all too easy to focus on ones own self-preservation. Through her thought provoking analysis Agnes Grunwald-Spier uncovers the stories of individuals who were willing to take the moral stance in the face of persecution and thereby earning the great honour bestowed upon them as "Righteous Among Nations"

The power of this book however lies in the author's ability to turn the question on the reader, asking us to reflect upon our own actions within our lives. I am sure that we would all like to think that have the courage to help our neighbours in times of need, but it is all too obvious that this is often not the case.
