The Courage to Care

Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation

Author Peter Hellman tells the story of the Holocaust rescuer Leokadia Jaromirska, Righteous Among the Nations. She rescued Shifra, a Jewish baby girl who had been abandoned near the fence of a convent in Poland, and sheltered her during the war, sometimes in very perilous circumstances. Today, Shifra Ivri is in her 80s and lives in Israel. Before the program, see the film “The Courage to Care,” narrated by Elie Wiesel, about rescue throughout Europe during the Holocaust.
