Conclusion : the helper's courage.
Of all the resistance organizations that operated during the war, about which much has been written, one stands out for its transnational character, the diversity of the tasks its members took on, and the fact that, unlike many of the known evasion lines, it was not directed by Allied officers, but rather by group of ordinary citizens. Between 1942 and 1945, they formed a network to smuggle Dutch Jews and others targeted by the Nazis south into France, via Paris, and then to Switzerland. This network became known as the Dutch-Paris Escape Line, eventually growing to include 300 people and expanding its reach into Spain. Led by Jean Weidner, a Dutchman living in France, many lacked any experience in clandestine operations or military tactics, and yet they became one of the most effective resistance groups of the Second World War. Dutch-Paris largely improvised its operations-scrounging for food on the black market, forging documents, and raising cash. Hunted relentlessly by the Nazis, some were even captured and tortured. In addition to Jews, those it helped escape the clutches of the Nazis included resistance fighters, political foes, Allied airmen, and young men looking to get to London to enlist. As the need grew more desperate, so did the bravery of those who rose to meet it. Using recently declassified archives, The Escape Line tells the story of the Dutch-Paris and the thousands of people it saved during World War II. Koreman, who was given exclusive access to many of the archives, is herself the daughter of Dutch parents who were part of the resistance, offers the definitive account of this largely untold story.

A new and chilling study of lethal human exploitation in the Soviet forced labor camps, one of the pillars of Stalinist terror In a shocking new study of life and death in Stalin's Gulag, historian Golfo Alexopoulos suggests that Soviet forced labor camps were driven by brutal exploitation and often administered as death camps. The first study to examine the Gulag penal system through the lens of health, medicine, and human exploitation, this extraordinary work draws from previously inaccessible archives to offer a chilling new view of one of the pillars of Stalinist terror.

"The exhibition shows the everyday lives of the men, women and children carted off to work -- at the camp, duirng work, and in dealing with Germans. It illustrated the extent to which the forced labourers' lives were dominated by the strict racist hierarchy of the Nazi regime. This catalogue records key content from the permanent exhibition with many, in some cases unknown photographs, documents and objects on the history of Nazi Forced Labour and its consequences. It also includes numerous biographies of forced labourers and of Germans -- perperators, profiteers, onlookers and helpers"-- p.4 of cover.
Gewone helden' vertelt de boeiende verhalen van mannen en vrouwen in Nederland, België, Frankrijk en Zwitserland die hun leven riskeerden om duizenden mensen te helpen vluchten voor de nazi's. Over de oorlog en het verzet is veel geschreven, vaak over bekende verzetshelden en overlevenden van de Holocaust. Minder aandacht was er voor de vele anonieme mensen die op allerlei manieren vluchtelingen hielpen of in veiligheid brachten. Zo waren zo'n 340 mannen en vrouwen betrokken bij de ontsnappingslijn van het netwerk Dutch-Paris, opgezet door Jean Henri Weidner. Langs deze zorgvuldig geconstrueerde vluchtroute via België en Frankrijk naar Zwitserland en Spanje ontsnapten tussen 1942 en 1945 ruim 3000 mensen aan de nazi's. Mede dankzij het persoonlijke archief van Weidner zijn de verhalen van de vluchters en verzetsplegers van Dutch-Paris boven tafel gekomen. Dit boek geeft gewone helden een naam en een gezicht.

Ask any GI who served in the Pacific during World War Two if he "climbed the stairs" on Hotel Street in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii, and if he says "Yes" the feller has a story to tell you. Hotel Street was the military's best kept open secret and probably helped win the war. At least Harry thought so. That would be "Hotel Street Harry, " the newspaper byline of an anonymous U.S. Army reporter who felt it his solemn and sacred duty to investigate and inform the ranks of soldiers, sailors, marines and coast guarders of the "goings-on" and "what-have-yous" happening in the GI carnival, as Harry "advisedly" described it, that was wartime Hotel Street. Compiled into one volume for the first time, the complete works of Hotel Street Harry, March 1, 1943 to May 12, 1945. (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9781365095245 20170130

This memoir is an invaluable source about Hungary's fate in World War II. Ullein-Reviczky's work was based partly on the public and private documents he succeeded in saving throughout the war and his long years of exile in Turkey, Switzerland, France and Britain where he died. Written by a well-informed insider and a shrewd observer, this book remained essentially unknown in the English-speaking world. Antal Ullein-Reviczky's memoirs represent an important source of the history of Hungary from German war through Russian peace, giving a unique insight into the Hungarian tragedy".
