STORIES OF PEOPLE WHO SAVED THE LIVES OF OTHERS
The Righteous Project collects information about people who were saving Jews and other victims of genocide during the Holocaust. We are also referring to those who have received the honorific title “Righteous Among the Nations” from the State of Israel. For the moment, there are 2659 residents of Ukraine who have been awarded this honorary title. By the number of the Righteous, Ukraine ranks 4th among 51 countries of the world.
Our center helps the Righteous in Ukraine. During the current pandemic, we are providing them with assistance and groceries, medicines and books.
We continue searching for the Righteous, recording their stories and collecting testimonies about unknown heroes. We are compiling and expanding the list of these people and their descendants.
There were many Righteous in Ukraine, but many remain unknown. If you, or your relatives, friends or acquaintances have any information about those who helped Jews during the occupation, please get in contact - [email protected].
