Description:
Toby Belfer is now in the fifth grade, and she and her best friend Donna take a trip to Israel to tour the Holy Land. There, the girls visit Yad Vashem, the Holocaust History Museum where they learn about the Righteous Gentiles, the Christian men and women who aided persecuted Jews during the Holocaust.

Recounting the true stories of twenty-six Righteous Gentile heroes, this compelling book for middle readers celebrates the men and women who were determined to do the right thing, no matter the cost. Jozef Zwonartz sacrificed everything he had to hide a Jewish family. Alfred Rosner, a German Christian, was executed by the Nazis for helping Jews. Mother Maria Skobtsova was a Russian nun who was imprisoned in a concentration camp for smuggling Jewish children out of Nazi-occupied Paris.

Complete with a glossary of important terms and illustrations of the heroic figures, this newest Toby Belfer adventure is an important lesson in world history for young readers. Including the stories of Corrie Ten Boom, Heinz Dorssel, Princess Andrew of Greece, and the students in Whitwell, Tennessee, and their incredible Paper Clip Project, this book will give children of all faiths the ability to believe, in the words of Anne Frank, that despite everything, people are really good at heart.
