We have all heard about the Righteous Among the Nations,
non-Jews who saved the lives of Jews during the Holocaust, but many of
us are unfamiliar with the stories of Jews who risked their lives to
save fellow Jews during World War II.
In a unique annual commemoration ceremony held Monday as Israel
marked Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day,
28 Jewish Rescuers Citations were granted to Jewish rescuers who were active in Hungary during the war.
