Abstract

This study explores dimensions of the identification of non-Jewish helpers with potential Jewish victims during the Holocaust. Reasoning from game-theoretic conditions, political, theological and socioeconomic forms of identification are developed and applied in three settings. Political and theological identifications between Jews and non-Jewish helpers are found to distinguish between the rescue of virtually the entire Jewish community in Denmark and its annihilation in Lithuania. The third setting is Germany between 1933 and 1944 in which the socioeconomic identifications between middle-class Christians and their Jewish counterparts is suggested to account for the larger than expected helping of Jews by white-collar Germans, in comparison with other occupational categories.
