(p.35) Chapter 3 Tony: Rescuer
Ethics in an Age of Terror and Genocide

Kristen Renwick Monroe

Princeton University Press

This chapter relates an interview with Tony, who was a young Dutch cavalry officer when the war began. Tony was bourgeois, with conservative social values and strong feelings of support for the Dutch monarchy. He credits some of his empathic worldview to his wartime experience; he saw heavy fighting during the Nazi invasion of Holland. His narrative is presented in as unadorned a form as possible, with limited editing and no analytical comment, to facilitate the reader's entering into Tony's head, to understand how Tony's ethical framework, and particularly his perceptions of himself in relation to others, worked to limit the choices Tony found available.

Keywords:   cavalry officer, Holland, human nature, religion, altruism, conservative values, ethical framework
