From Amazon: Relates the stories of courageous non-Jewish teenagers who rescued Jews from the Nazis.

Rescuers Defying the Nazis, by Toby Axelrod, is a non-fiction book about non-Jewish teens who rescued Jewish families from the Holocaust. This book uses examples of rescue accounts and real quotes and passages from Jewish and non-Jewish survivors during the 1940's. The book also helps to portray the realism of the danger involved with helping Jews as well as the was and Hitler's reign.

Rescuers is a favorite topic amongst teens reading about the Holocaust. Many of the teens involved became rescuers when their parents opted to hid Jews. Yet, there are the stories, such as Teresa Prekerowa who rescued a little girl in Warsaw and hid her even from Teresa's family. The stories of these brave teens, acting alone or with a group, are touching.
