Righteous Among the Nations | The Bond Between Rescuers and Rescued »
The Righteous Among the Nations are a most diverse group of men and women coming from all walks of life, age groups, religious affiliation (all Christian denominations, Muslims, atheists) and professions – university people, teachers, physicians, clergy, diplomats, simple workers, servants, policemen, fishermen, farmers, undertakers, etc. They include highly educated city dwellers and illiterate peasants, officials and people from the margins of society from all the corners of Europe. The only common denominator is that they believed that the Jews belonged to their universe of obligation and that they were willing to pay a dear price for this commitment. We can see the faces of some of these courageous people in this moving photo gallery.
