The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous identifies hallmark character traits (compassion, cooperation, courage, ingenuity, integrity, moral leadership, self-sacrifice, and social responsibility), defines them, and for each trait honors two exemplary Holocaust rescuers. The rescuers range from the well known (Oskar Schindler, Varian Fry) to the little-known but deserving (like Aristides de Sousa Mendes, a Portuguese diplomat in France who issued thousands of travel visas). A teacher's guide includes discussion points, background information, maps, suggested readings, and a filmography. 17" x 22". ©2005.
