Conference Proceeding: Beyond Courage: Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust

Six years ago, a reference librarian in the Dorot Room of New York's 42nd Street Library brought Doreen Rappaport three volumes she had not requested - all about Jewish resistance during the Holocaust - and sparked her curiosity to explore this subject. Rappaport shares her research journey from domestic and international libraries and archives to her work with Holocaust scholars and resisters to shape a book that covers the most up-to-date concepts of "resistance" and reveals how Jews organized to rescue themselves and others. Beyond Courage garnered six starred reviews, was selected as one of the best non-fiction books of 2012 by The New York Times and The Washington Post, and was named a Sydney Taylor Honor Book for Teen Readers by AJL.

Presented by Doreen Rappaport at the 2013 AJL Conference in Houston, TX.
