Summary:In this brilliantly researched and insightful  book, psychologist Eva Fogelman presents compelling  stories of rescuers of Jews during the  Holocaust--and offers a revealing analysis of their  motivations. Based on her extensive experience as a  therapist treating Jewish survivors of the Holocaust and  those who helped them, Fogelman delves into the  psychology of altruism,illuminating why these  rescuers chose to act while others simply stood by.  While analyzing motivations,Conscience And  Couragetells the stories of such  little-known individuals as Stefnaia Podgorska  Burzminska, a Polish teenager who hid thirteen Jews in her  home; Alexander Roslan, a dealer in the black  market who kept uprooting his family to shelter three  Jewish children in his care, as well as more  heralded individuals such as Oskar Schindler, Raoul  Wallenberg, ad Miep Gies. Speaking to the same  audience that flocked to Steven Spielberg's Academy  Award-winning movie,Schindler's  List,Conscience And Courageis the  first book to go beyond the stories to answer the  question: Why did they  help?
