Hero of the Holocaust is an award given to Brits who went above and beyond to help rescue victims of the Holocaust In this book Lyn Smith gives short biographies of each of the people who have been honored with this award so far especially outlining what they did to receive this merit Some of the heroes did not keep diaries or have parts of their ordeals that have slipped into anonymity so Smith fills in the gaps by relating what other people in similar time and situation experienced Woven throughout is an outline of what was going on during WWII in Europe to provide background the book is arranged chronologically by when the people were active in their heroic actsThis was a very inspiring read The heroes are from uite varied backgrounds but they all share the guts to help fellow humans regardless to what it might cost themselves Sometimes the flow of the stories lags a little when Smith has to fill in gaps with other narratives and explanations but for the most part it is an engaging and worthwhile read I'd highly recommendNotes on content There are a few mild swear words that appear very occasionally in uotes Also some derogatory terms related in stories In the last story people mention several rapes that happened These are not described in any detail it is just stated that they happened No sexual content beyond that Relating stories of the Holocaust and WWII there is obviously a LOT of violence involved
