Beyond Courage

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2014-05-21) Excellent Permalink

A very interesting book about the Jewish Resistance during World War II. The acts of courage by the Jewish people to save their children and their future are riveting. For those interested in World War II history this book gives an inside view of the resistance that is pretty much untold in history...
