The rescue that we know is the rescue of memory. Driven by the search for heroes and “righteous gentiles,” and relying on interviews, conducted decades after the event, the public commemoration and the academic scholarship of rescue have been largely oblivious to the ways in which the experience of rescue has been refracted and reworked in postwar memory. Using the remarkable archive of the League of Socialist Life, this talk seeks both to understand the wartime experience of helping Jews and to historicize the postwar remembrance of resistance and rescue.
