Resisting Genocide

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the context in which Jews were rescued from the Nazis in the German-occupied Western Europe during World War II. Citing the deportation of Jews in the Netherlands, it shows that punishment for aiding Jews only began in the second half of 1943, a year after the deportations began. It also considers the factors that contributed to the success of rescue activities during the Holocaust period, such as the degree of direct control exerted by the Germans on the executive apparatus they needed to carry out their genocide of the Jews. Finally, the chapter assesses the impact of bureaucracy on rescue, with particular reference to the police agencies.
