Review: Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust
Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust by Doreen Rappaport
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Many Americans know about the Holocaust. Maybe they have read The Diary of Anne Frank or Night; they may have studied it during history class or watched a documentary. What most of us are not aware of is that there are a lot more stories, and not all stories can fill an entire book. The courage and bravery of the survivors and victims should not be forgotten because they were not epic in scope.
Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust brings many of these smaller actions to the front. They are of no less value because of their length therefore teens and adults will all benefit from reading these stories. This book tells the story of 21 events across 11 countries during World War II. Not everyone in this book survived the Holocaust, but the courage and bravery of the young and old will inspire those who read these accounts.
