Item description for Resisters, Rescuers, and Refugees: Historical and Ethical Issues by John J. Michalczyk...
Fifty years after World War II, critical issues of this international conflict still haunt our society today in business, war crimes trials, and international relations. This text focuses on the historical issues of Christian rescue of Jews, resistance to Nazi oppression, and the plight of the refugee in light of current problems facing us. The essays in this book, from nationally and internationally-known scholars, reveal that the Holocaust was not only a Jewish tragedy but an epic human tragedy as well, one that has indelibly scarred the collective soul of twentieth-century society. As these scholars and witnesses provide insights into the historical context of World War II and the Holocaust, they also assist us in regulating the future behavior of ourselves, our country, and our world.
