Bystanders to the Holocaust : a re-evaluation by David Cesarani( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first to use the new archival sources to examine the record of the 'free world' during the Nazi persecution and mass murder of the Jews, and ask why so little was done to help the Jews. Acclaimed historians and new researchers from round the world reveal how much Britain, the SUA, Switzerland, and Sweden knew about the fate of the Jews and explains why only a few, exceptional individuals understood the catastrophe that was unfolding."--Jacket

Raoul Wallenberg in Budapest : myth, history and Holocaust by Paul A Levine( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raoul Wallenberg is a genuine hero of the Holocaust, revered and honoured by millions worldwide for his humanitarian achievements in Budapest in 1944. During his often dramatic six months in that tragic city, Wallenberg and his diplomatic colleagues saved and assisted many thousands more Jews than did the more famous Oskar Schindler. The numerous existing publications about Wallenberg have been hagiographic in nature rather than historical, characterized by inaccuracies, exaggerations and a lack of historical context." "Paul A. Levine has studied Wallenberg and Swedish diplomacy during the Holocaust for twenty years. Using contemporary Swedish diplomatic documents never before studied, Levine places Wallenberg in an accurate historical context, providing an almost daily picture of his activities, including his essential negotiations with Hungarian officials, German and Hungarian Nazis, and other neutral diplomats. Through careful analysis of Wallenberg's own personal and diplomatic correspondence, this study provides a richer and more nuanced picture of this fascinating burgenerally misunderstood figure. Though not a biography, Wallenberg's up-bringing is explored, with the motives and goals for his mission analysed. This study replaces the one-dimensional caricature which has long dominated the public's view of Wallenberg with a more complicated individual who made history during the Holocaust." "Levine also explores how the many myths about Wallenberg and his mission have played a significant role in distorting both the public's understanding of him, and of how he actually worked to assist and save thousands of Jews. Rather than being an 'angel of rescue', as he is some times referred to, Wallenberg was a very real man whose status as a Swedish diplomat was more crucial to his ability to act than his own motivations. Often referred to as an archetypical 'altruisric personality', this study demonstrates that Wallenberg was hardly a 'hero-in-training' before Budapest. It also argues that by dispensing with these myths, Wallenberg's true historic worth as a moral symbol is enhanced rather than diminished."--Jacket

This booklet, sponsored by the Swedish government as part of an information program about the Holocaust, is aimed at helping adults teach their children about the events, and relates specifically to the experiences of children.

Includes illustrations (photos, drawings), chronological tables, poems, quotations (e.g. examples of racism), and a map of Auschwitz. Stress is placed on choices people and governments (including the Allies) made, physical and spiritual resistance, and the role of non-Jews as collaborators, rescuers, witnesses, or bystanders. Relates to Swedish aspects of the Holocaust as well. Includes a section on non-Jewish (especially Gypsy) victims of the Nazis

"Ovanligt klar och utan onödigheter ... Levine har gett oss en lärdom." Östgöta Correspondenten "Ett vederhäftigt och banbrytande arbete som säkerligen kommer att skapa debatt och generera många nya forskningsuppslag." Nerikes Allehanda Välskriven bok som ger en ny, stundtals överraskande och genomgående nyanserad bild av den svenske diplomaten Raoul Wallenberg! Raoul Wallenberg är en av Förintelsens hjältar, som har hyllats för sina insatser i BudaƠpest 1944. Paul A. Levine, docent i historia vid Uppsala universitet, har under 20 års tid forskat kring Wallenberg och svensk diplomati under Förintelsen. Här river han hål på ett antal myter om en människa vars symboliska kraft levt kvar decennier efter hans försvinnande. I denna nyanserade skildring av vad Wallenberg lyckades uträtta under sina sex korta månader på historiens stora scen tonas hjältestatusen ned, men läsaren får en rikare bild av honom som person. Raul Wallenbergs insatser för att hjälpa och rädda judar under Förintelsen har beundrats av miljoner människor världen över. Postumt har han erhållit hedersmedborgarskap i flera länder, han står som staty i många städer i världen och han har fått ge namn åt både aka-demiska institutioner, skolor, parker och gator. De sex månader Wallenberg tillbringade i det hårt drabbade Budapest under krigsslutet var dramatiska. Han och hans kolleger hjälpte många tusen fler judar än den betydligt mer berömde Oskar Schindler. Men de flesta böcker om Wallenberg har en tendens att glorifiera honom snarare än att skildra den verkliga historien. [Publit]
