  • "A timely book for a new century... The questions raised in this book lie at the heart of our humanity."

    Guardian
  • "Martin Gilbert brings together some remarkable stories of courage and ingenuity."

    Matthew J. Reisz, Independent
  • "The paperback of the year was Martin Gilbert's THE RIGHTEOUS. It is heartbreaking yet inspiring, an account of people who risked their lives, and worse, to shelter Jews during the Second World War. I beg everyone to read it."

    Independent on Sunday
  • "Retold here by Martin Gilbert with his customary quiet authority ... the stories of the many "righteous" remembered by Gilbert in his account of human goodness, are the true seeds of hope that survived the Holocaust."

    A. C. Grayling, Financial Times
  • "Two implicit demands are made of us by Gilbert's powerful book. They are, most obviously: where would you and I have stood? And the question which also provides the probable answer: what if the 19,000 [Righteous] had been 19 million?"

    The Scotsman
