This chapter focuses on the role played by Protestants and their pastors in the rescue of Jews in France during the 1940s. It first explains the affinity between Jews and minority Protestants and why Protestant attitudes, faced with anti-Semitism and genocide, differed from those of Catholics and ‘National’ Protestants like the German Church. It then suggests that the commitment of French Protestants in acts of rescue had much to do with to their spiritual affinities with the Jews, given their common reference to scripture.

Keywords:   rescue, Protestants, Jews, France, anti-Semitism, genocide, Catholics, German Church, scripture
