MISSION STATEMENT
RIGHTEOUS AMONG THE NATIONS PROFILES

Righteous Among the Nations Profiles

Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial museum, honours the small minority of individuals who risked their lives under Nazi occupation to protect their Jewish neighbours. They have been declared by Yad Vashem as “Righteous Among the Nations”.

Against unimaginable tyranny, these Righteous people acted in response to a deep sense of injustice and out of respect, duty and sometimes love towards their fellow human beings. These remarkable people defied the Nazis, offering Jews hiding places, false papers, escape routes, food and clothing. They faced the significant danger of discovery, imprisonment and even death for themselves and their families. Some of the people they saved ended up living in Montreal.

Scroll through these profiles, excerpted from stories provided by the Department of the Righteous Among the Nations, Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, to read about some of those honoured as Righteous Among the Nations. Their courage and their commitment to humanity are an inspiration.

These stories and photographs are provided courtesy of the Department of the Righteous Among the Nations, Yad Vashem, Jerusalem.
