The results of these interviews are chronicled in Dr. Fogelman's book, Conscience and Courage. Dr. Fogelman writes, "This book looks at those few who defied authority and put themselves at risk to act humanely. These are their is my hope that these acts of compassion, too, will never be forgotten, and that they will be repeated again and again and again."
