Sir Martin Gilbert: The Righteous - Non-Jews who Helped Jews During the Second World War

3/4/2003; 58 minutes

Sir Martin Gilbert, C.B.E., is one of the 20th century's foremost historians of World War II, the Holocaust and the founding of modern Israel. In "The Righteous—Non-Jews Who Helped Jews During the Second World War" Gilbert tells how, as the Third Reich carried out its program to exterminate European Jewry, many Gentiles risked their careers and lives to conceal and rescue Jewish refugees. His stories on the "Righteous" include such now-famous names as Raoul Wallenberg and Oskar Schindler, as well as ordinary people who exercised ordinary decency in extraordinary times. (#6965)
