This incredible book has been called "a stirring chapter to documented Jewish resistance to the Holocaust." Wilhelm Bachner has been called "the Jewish Schindler" because of his heroics in saving hundreds of Jewish families from almost certain annihilation in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1939. The authors interviewed Bachner in 1983, and did extensive historical research.
