Among the Righteous, Paperback / softback Book

Among the Righteous Paperback / softback


Thousands of people have been honored for saving Jews during the Holocaust,but not a single Arab.

Looking for a hopeful response to the plague of Holocaust denial sweeping across the Arab and Muslim worlds, Robert Satloff sets off on a quest to find the Arab hero whose story will change the way Arabs view Jews, themselves, and their own history. The story of the Holocaust's long reach into the Arab world is difficult to uncover, covered up by desert sands and desert politics.

We follow Satloff over four years, through eleven countries, from the barren wasteland of the Sahara, where thousands of Jews were imprisoned in labour camps through the archways of the Mosque in Paris, which may once have hidden 1700 Jews to the living rooms of octogenarians in London, Paris and Tunis.

The story is very cinematic the characters are rich and handsome, brave and cowardly there are heroes and villains.

The most surprising story of all is why, more than sixty years after the end of the war, so few people, Arab and Jew,want this story told.
