Editorial Reviews Review

Thanks to an Oscar-winning film by Steven Spielberg, the name Oskar Schindler is almost as familiar as the name Anne Frank. Hollywood, and history, hasn't been as kind to Varian Fry, even though he shared a similar heroic streak. Varian Fry saved hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust, including some of the "brightest stars of European culture." Marc Chagall, Marcel Duchamp, Hannah Arendt... these are just a few of the luminaries who owe their lives to him. How is it, then, that Fry's name isn't just as recognizable as theirs? Dara Horn aims to remedy that in this Kindle Single, and in the process examines other interesting questions: Is there such a thing as a rescuer's mentality? Do individuals like Oskar Schindler and Varian Fry agonize over their dangerous work, wrestle with the moral complexities involved--are they ever afraid? Or, are they hardwired to "immediately recognize what [any given] situation calls for" with an almost auto-response? For that matter, did the Nazis agonize over their actions? Hannah Arendt reasoned that the evil perpetrated on the Jews was possible because of certain individuals' "inability to think." Horn's Kindle Single begs us all to do the opposite: think, ask questions, and remember the Varian Frys of the world, whose work she convincingly argues should be lauded just as much as, if not more than, any of the "bright stars" this forgotten hero saved. --Erin Kodicek
