Though it has been nearly seventy years since the Holocaust, the human capacity for evil displayed by its perpetrators is still shocking and haunting. But the story of the Nazi attempt to annihilate European Jewry is not all we should remember. Stealth Altruism tells of secret, non-militant, high-risk efforts by “Carers,” those victims who tried to reduce suffering and improve everyone’s chances of survival. Their empowering acts of altruism remind us of our inherent longing to do good even in situations of extraordinary brutality. Arthur B. Shostak explores forbidden acts of kindness, such as sharing scarce clothing and food rations, holding up weakened fellow prisoners during roll call, secretly replacing an ailing friend in an exhausting work detail, and much more. He explores the motivation behind this dangerous behavior, how it differed when in or out of sight, who provided or undermined forbidden care, the differing experiences of men and women, how and why gentiles provided aid, and, most importantly, how might the costly obscurity of stealth altruism soon be corrected. To date, memorialization has emphasized what was done to victims and sidelined what victims tried to do for one another. “Carers” provide an inspiring model and their perilous efforts should be recognized and taught alongside the horrors of the Holocaust. Humanity needs such inspiration.

From the riveting testimonies and files housed at Yad Vashem, Holocaust historian Mordecai Paldiel presents dozens of stories of the circumstances and odds facing Jews inside Nazi-dominated Europe and those who would help them. Highlighting the aid and assistance of non-Jews, Paldeil demonstrates that the awesome efficiency of the Nazi death machine did not rule out heroism by ordinary people, in spite of risks. Stories and photos focused on conditions of sheltering, movement of people across borders, passing as a gentile, rescues of children, an dangers of detection epitomize the radical altruism, courage, and ingenuity that helped some Jews to survive the darkest moment in history.

Histoire des Justes en France 3300 Français ont reçu le titre de Justes, sur près de 24 000 Européens – un sur sept. Le titre, décerné après enquête par l’institut israélien Yad Vashem, récompense ceux qui, n’étant pas juifs, ont sauvé au moins un juif au cours de la Shoah. Qui sont ces hommes et ces femmes ? On les a longtemps tenus pour des héros inconnus, voire anonymes, et la plupart le sont restés. Mais, depuis 2000, le 20 juillet est une journée d’hommage aux Justes de France et, en 2007, ils sont entrés au Panthéon. La France avait longtemps tiré fierté des résistants en armes, avant de réapprendre le poids de l’antisémitisme et de l’égoïsme dans les années 1940 : elle découvre aujourd’hui les Justes, dont la résistance a été civile, pacifique, humanitaire – et, souvent, spirituelle. Ils tiennent dans notre mémoire collective une place qui ne doit pas occulter la tragédie de la Shoah, mais rappelle qu’une autre France, aux côtés de celle de Vichy, a existé, forte de valeurs universalistes. Ce livre propose un portrait collectif des Justes. Certains ont été des héros solitaires, d’autres étaient portés par des milieux et même des lieux à forte personnalité. C’est peut-être la leçon de ce livre : dans la banalité du bien comme du mal, les hommes, au moment du choix, sont à la fois seuls et enserrés dans une multitude de liens. Patrick Cabanel est professeur d’histoire contemporaine à l’Université de Toulouse-Le Mirail et dirige la revue Diasporas. Histoire et sociétés. Il a publié notamment Juifs et protestants en France, les affinités électives XVIe-XXIe siècle (2004), Cévennes. Un jardin d’Israël (2004), Chère Mademoiselle... Alice Ferrières et les enfants de Murat, 1941-1944 (2010), et a codirigé Cévennes, terre de refuge, 1940-1944 (1987).
