Righteous among the nations

In 1953 the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, founded “Yad Vashem” – a museum in remembrance of Holocaust victims. Ten years later a commission for proclaiming the Righteous among Nations was  established. The reward in the form of a medal and diploma are a testimony of the courage of individuals, exclusively non-Jews, who during World War Two risked their own lives as well as the lives of their families to save those of Jewish people who, for the most part, were completely unknown to them.
