This chapter examines the altruistic behavior of Protestant rescuers of Jews in Nazi Europe. It analyzes qualities shared by the Protestant rescuers with other Protestants and how Protestants generally compare with Catholics. The findings reveal that Protestants were particularly strong on potency measures compared to Catholics and that both Protestant rescuers and bystanders scored significantly higher on personal potency than their Catholic counterparts. This chapter also shares the stories of Protestant rescuers and bystanders including that of a German Lutheran rescuer, a Norwegian Lutheran rescuer, and a Dutch Lutheran bystander.
