Summary
Every genocide in history has been notable for the minority of brave individuals and groups who put their own lives at risk to rescue its would-be victims. Based on three case studies - the genocides of the Armenians, the Jews and the Rwandese Tutsis - this book attempts to make rescue an object of research, while breaking free of the notion of 'Righteous among the Nations'
