This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about religious culture, altruism, and the rescue of Jews in Nazi Europe. The volume examines the values and attitudes commonly associated with altruism, focusing on the religious cultural contexts from which individuals emerged. It compares the altruistically associated predispositions of people with different levels of religiosity and two denominations—Protestant and Roman Catholic. It also describes individual rescuers from different national contexts and provides intergroup and intragroup comparisons.

Keywords:   religious culture, altruism, Jews, Nazi Europe, religiosity, Protestants, Roman Catholics
