Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks comments on ‘The Other Schindlers’

The Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks has recently read ‘The Other Schindlers’ and has commented today:

Agnes Grunwald-Spier has written that rarest of works, a book about the Holocaust that lifts the spirit and shows us beyond possibility of doubt that individuals can make a difference, take a stand against evil, and rescue for all time a vestige of faith in our common humanity. By telling the story of those who saved lives often at the risk of their own, she has given us a most moving series of vignettes of unselfconscious courage to inspire us, should the time ever come again, to defeat hate in the name of our shared fate.
