Otto Weidt — A Unique Story of Rescue in Berlin

Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation

OTTO WEIDT was a visually impaired Holocaust rescuer who was named Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem. He owned a workshop in Berlin that manufactured brushes and brooms created by visually impaired workers, many of whom were Jewish. During the Nazi period he found hiding places for his Jewish employees, with the help of his sighted assistant Alice Licht. When Licht herself was deported to Auschwitz, Weidt traveled to the concentration camp, alone, to try to save her. A unique story of love and determination!
