Ida Cook (b. 1904 in Sunderland, England, U.K. - d. date|1986-12-22) and her sister Mary Louise Cook (1901-1991) rescued Jews from the Nazis during the 1930s. They visited Germany, posing as opera fanatics, willing to travel anywhere to see a favorite artist. When returning to England, they smuggled in valuables, which allowed Jews fleeing Germany to satisfy the British financial security requirements for immigration. They worked with Austrian conductor Clemens Krauss who initially had told them of the prosecution of the Jews. The sisters helped 29 people escape, funded mainly by Ida's writing. In 1965, the Cook sisters were honored as Righteous Gentiles by the Yad Vashem Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Authority in Israel.

Ida Cook wrote more than 100 romance novels as Mary Burchell, and also wrote as James Keene with William Everett Cook. She helped to found and was for many years president of the Romantic Novelists' Association.
