20th-century German rabbi, scholar, and leader of Progressive Judaism, Leo Baeck published The Essence of Judaism, which interpreted Judaism through a prism of Neo-Kantianism.  The book made him a famous proponent for Jews and their faith. In 1943, he was deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp and  became the "honorary head" of the Council of Elders (Judenrat) in Theresienstadt.  Despite offers to help him escape, he refused to abandon his community. He did  survive the Holocaust.
