Description
 
More than six million European Jews were killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust. While this tragedy was taking place, thousands of Christian men and women sacrificed their safety and even their lives to provide much-needed help to the Jews. When Toby Belfer and her friend Donna, both now in the fifth grade, visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum, they learn about the incredibly selfless acts of these Righteous Gentiles.

From Janis Lipke, a man who saved hundreds of Jews by smuggling them out of the ghetto in Riga, Latvia, to Irena Sendler, who saved the lives of at least twenty-five hundred Jewish children in Poland, and Senpo Sugihara, the Japanese official who issued visas that delivered Jews to safety, each hero Toby learns about represents the best of humanity in the face of one of the worst travesties in history.

When Toby returns home to Louisiana, she is surprised to learn about the Righteous Gentiles of Whitwell, Tennessee. These American schoolchildren started an amazing tribute to Holocaust victims, known as the Paper Clip Project.
Accompanied by striking pen-and-ink illustrations, the accounts of courageous men and women from many countries throughout Europe and the world provide important and inspiring lessons in history that will enrich children of any faith.
