Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust
Book Publisher
Candlewick 2012

The Holocaust. In classrooms we learn about the millions of Jews who were persecuted, murdered and thrown into concentration camps to live in unspeakable conditions. This book is a collection of the stories of individuals who fought back against this evil.

It's a book about individuals who showed remarkable courage in incredibly horrific times whether sending children away to be saved, staging fake kidnappings, forging documents or surviving in bleak forests with no food or shelter.

These are the stories a grandparent might tell- sharing the courage of a relative. These are the stories that make the history come alive. These are the stories that are so important to remember. Defiance. Resilience. Courage. Ingenuity. The power of the individual. Risk. All of these valiant qualities are illuminated in this vivid account of the Jewish resistance against indescribable oppression and hatred.
