Holocaust victims faced moral dilemmas for which no one could prepare, and yet many of these life-and-death situations required immediate decisive action. In Problems Unique to the Holocaust, leading Holocaust scholars examine the difficult questions from this chapter of history. Is it ever legitimate to betray others to save yourself? If a group of Jews is hiding behind a wall and a baby begins to cry, should an adult smother the child to protect the safety of the others? This penetrating collection of essays brings new depth to moral discussions of the Holocaust by considering the actions of the victims in the context of their persecution.
