Many Holocaust scholars subscribe to the theory that under the unimaginable stress of Holocaust persecution Jewish victims found that, in extremis, conventional morality did not apply. On the basis of an analysis of a sample of videotestimonies held in the Jewish Holocaust Museum and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia (hereafter the JHMRC), this article argues that such assumptions require revision. Despite observing numerous instances of unconscionable behaviour, in these videotestimonies survivors provide many examples of their own ethical practices and those of others.
