Abstract:

Presents results of a statistical analysis of two samples of rescuers' files held at Yad Vashem. The first sample includes 700 files of Righteous among the Nations from France and the second 214 files of those from Belgium; the rescuers from both groups were honored with this title in 2000-2005. Focuses on the case of France, comparing it with the case of Belgium. Notes the geographical distribution of the rescuers: e.g. in Belgium 83.6% of the rescuers were from Walloonia. Gives the class and status distribution of the rescuers; in both countries it was peasants who most frequently rendered help to Jews, with workers being the second most numerous group. Notes their gender and age distributions. Analyzes the motivations of the rescuers (humanitarianism, patriotism, acquaintances, religious motives, etc.). For many rescuers, their acts were a form of protest against the Vichy regime. Some of the rescuers were connected with the Resistance, and even more with relief structures. Not all of the rescuers were recognized by Yad Vashem as Righteous among the Nations; some survivors, for various reasons, have not applied to have their rescuers recognized.
