This chapter examines the altruistic behavior of irreligious rescuers of Jews in Nazi Europe. It compares irreligious rescuers and irreligious nonrescuers including a Dutch rescuer, a Polish rescuer, and a French communist nonrescuer. It also compares religious and irreligious rescuers and suggests that while they differ in many important ways, they also share some common characteristics.

Keywords:   irreligious rescuers, Jews, Nazi Europe, altruistic behavior, religious rescuers, irreligious nonrescuers
