Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust by Doreen Rappaport

Stories from the Holocaust point out the brutality and barbarism of the Nazis with the prisoners being their helpless victims.  I have seldom heard much about the courageous resistance of Jewish prisoners and others who helped them before reading this book.  But Rappaport details many such examples of prisoners effectively standing up to the Nazis in numerous ways.  It is inspiring to read about courage in the face of such oppression.
