About the Author

Mordecai Paldiel is a professor of history at Yeshiva University-Stern College and Touro College and is a consultant to the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation. He is the former longtime director of the Righteous Among the Nations Department at Yad Vashem and was himself rescued from the Holocaust by a "Righteous Gentile." Paldiel is the author of eight books, including Sheltering the Jews: Stories of Holocaust Rescuers and Saving the Jews: Amazing Stories of Men and Women Who Defied the "Final Solution."


"Paldiel's book includes remarkable stories of remarkable people."-Tammy Mark, Jewish Link of New Jersey -- Tammy Mark * Jewish Link of New Jersey *
"The first of its kind . . . Saving One's Own is very important because it illustrates the resilience of people in Nazi-occupied Europe and dispels the myth of Jewish passivity during the Holocaust. Thoroughly researched, exciting, and engaging."-Samuel P. Oliner, author of The Altruistic Personality and The Nature of Good and Evil
-- Samuel P. Oliner
"Mordecai Paldiel has encyclopedic knowledge of the subject. . . . Country by country, virtually institution by institution, he looks at ways in which Jews rescued Jews. Strongly recommended."-Michael Berenbaum, scholar, author, filmmaker, and former project director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum -- Michael Berenbaum
