Rescuing the Danish Jews

A Heroic Story From the Holocaust

Series: The Holocaust Through Primary Sources

By Ann Byers

Bent Melchior, a fourteen-year-old Danish Jew, was crammed into the hold of a fishing boat. But this was not a normal fishing trip. Surviving the crowded, filthy conditions on this trip meant reaching freedom. After many hours at sea, Melchior had reached safety in Sweden. The remarkable story of rescuing the Danish Jews has many heroic tales. In the midst of World War II and the slaughter of millions in the Holocaust, the Danes resisted Nazi brutality and saved thousands of people from death.

"The Holocaust Through Primary Sources series is a must have for any library that wants to offer a set of books that deals with the Holocaust that offers first hand accounts and photos of what happened to this dying people."

Southern Maine Library District, November 14, 2012

". . . a very useful source for research, and compelling reading for anyone interested in resistance movements and World War II and Holocaust history."

Delaware County Library System, January 2012

"The book is both exceptionally well written and very exciting. Each chapter offers the personal narratives and photographs of the active participants . . . Highly recommended for all middle and high school libraries. This is a must purchase."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, November 2011

"The format of telling the stories of the people escaping and those helping others makes it a hard to put down story from the Holocaust."

Association of Region XI School Libraries

". . . these titles illuminate events by quoting at length from personal narratives, which are set apart from the main texts as sidebars. Readers will gravitate to this approachable focus, and teachers may appreciate the way that quotes from primary sources are integrated into simple texts."
