The Righteous Due Date ______________________________
Single Voices Who Made A Multitude of Difference
During World War II, Holocaust Rescuers—also known as The Righteous—worked to keep persecuted people alive, defying Hitler and the Nazis. The Righteous were ordinary people from myriad countries who acted extraordinarily to rebel against the immorality of Hitler’s policies.
Unlike the Nazis who considered Jewish and other persecuted people their enemies, the Righteous saw them as fellow human beings in need of help. Their rescue stories are as different as the people and situations, but courage and compassion are the crux of every single one.
