Jewish Self-Help and Rescue in Nazi-Occupied Western Europe
The first comprehensive study of Jewish survival in Nazi-Occupied Western Europe in all its forms. Bob Moore looks at the escape routes used by Jews fleeing from the Nazis and the disparate networks that ran them, including not only the more well-known routes from France into Spain and Switzerland but also the lesser know history of the escape of Norwegian Jewry and the famous rescue from Denmark in 1943. Three national case studies (France, Belgium, and the
Netherlands) show how the very different circumstances and structures pertaining in these countries had a direct bearing on levels of survival. Finally, the spotlight is turned on cases where Jews were
saved, either directly or indirectly, by the Nazis themselves - and on the vexed question of Jews who survived by collaborating with the arrest and deportation of their co-religionists.
