about

Every genocide in history has been notable for the minority of brave individuals and groups who put their own lives at risk to rescue its would be victims. Based on three case studies - the genocides of the Armenians, the Jews and the Rwandese Tutsi - this book is the first internationalcomparative and multidisciplinary attempt to make rescue an object of research, while breaking free of the notion of "The Righteous Among the Nations."
