In this collection of mostly unknown stories, historian Tim Dowley recounts ten tales of extraordinary women and men - Christians with courage, ingenuity, and determination who risked their lives during the Second World War to protect and rescue Jews from the Holocaust.

During the Second World War, Christians from many nations and denominations stepped forward with courage, ingenuity and determination to protect and rescue Jews from the Holocaust. In doing so they risked their lives, and many died. Some, such as Corrie ten Boom, are celebrated, but most have been ignored. Historian Tim Dowley tells ten stories of these extraordinary women and men.
