Muslims, Jews, and the Holocaust

Although now we hear quite a bit about Muslims denying the Holocaust, things were not always thus.

NPR has a good interview with the author of a book called Besa: Muslims who Saved Jews in World War II. I have Besa, and can tell you it is very good. In searching for the title on Amazon, I found two other related books, listed below.

“Besa: Muslims Who Saved Jews in World War II” (Norman H. Gershman)


“The Grand Mosque of Paris: A Story of How Muslims Rescued Jews During the Holocaust” (Karen Gray Ruelle, Deborah Durland Desaix)

“When Courage Was Stronger Than Fear: Remarkable Stories of Christians and Muslims Who Saved Jews from the Holocaust” (Peter Hellman)
