The Memory of Goodness – Honoring the Righteous Among the Nations
Hosted By: The National Library of Israel
In addition to the memory of the six million victims, Yad Vashem, Israel’s official Holocaust memorial, commemorates the Righteous Among the Nations, non-Jews who risked their own lives and personal freedoms to save Jews from extermination by the Nazis. Though no exact figure is available, it is estimated that many tens of thousands of Jews were saved by these brave men and women during one of the darkest periods of human history.
Irena Steinfeldt, the former Director of the Righteous Among the Nations Department at Yad Vashem, will share some of these moving stories from the files of her former department.
This event will take place at 1:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. Israel time.
