review Á The Righteous The Unsung Heroes of the Holocaust 105 Read ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free É Martin Gilbert characters The Righteous The Unsung Heroes of the Holocaust The Unsung Heroes of the HolocaustDrawing from twenty five years of original research Sir Martin Gilbert re creates the remarkable stories of non Jews who risked their lives to help Jews during the HolocaustAccording to Jewish tradition Whoever saves one life it is as if he saved the entire world Non Jews who helped save Jewish lives during World War II are designated Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Va Martin Gilbert is the greatest historian on the subject of the holocaust out there and is one of the most prolific historians of todayIn The Righteous Gilbert describes the many cases of righteous gentiles throughout Nazi occupied Europe who risked their lives and all they had to save Jews many of them children from certain death at hte hands of the Nazi killing machineGilbert describes the heroic actions of those brave and righteous gentiles by region describing the action of the unsung heroes in Eastern Galicia Vilna Lithuania Poland Warsaw Western Galicia Germany and Austria Central Europe and the Balkans Norway Finland and Denmark France Belgium and Luxembourg Holland Italy and the Vatican and Hungary as well as in the Camps and on the death marchesIn some cases entire nations came together to say no to Nazi evil and to save the Jews of their countryDenmark Bulgaria and Albania stand out in this regardIrene Grunbaum wrote in her memoirs that one day she would tell the world how the Albanians protected a refugee and wouldn t allow her to be harmed even if it meant losing their lives The gates of your small country remained open Albania your authorities closed both eyes when neccesary to give poor persecuted people another chance to survive the most horrible of all wars We thank you Morechaie Paldiel writes that An overwhelming majority of the Albanian population Muslim and Christian gave refuge to two thousand Jews in their midst resulting in the almost total rescue of the Jewish community While Gilbers describes the hroism of the Danish and Bulgarian people he does not write enough on the very special and noble roles to save Jews taken by King Christian X of Denmark and King Boris III of BulgariaDespite the collaborators and local anti Semites in these nations whole towns and villages came togehter in some cases in France Belgium Holland and Greece to save their Jews from Nazi anihilationNazi Germany s allies Italy and Hungary rejected Nazi genocide of Jews and did what they could to save the Jews Italian occupied zones in Francethe Balkans etc were safe zones for Jews Only after direct Nazi ocupation were the Jews of these countries taken to the death camps Finland also protected her Jews and the neutral countries like Spain Portugal and Sweden played a role in saving a number of Jewish refugeesMany Jewish children were taken in by Christian families throughout Europe and looked after them as their ownIn Poland and the East the penalty for just having contacted a Jew was deathThere are many accounts of the recue and care of Jewish children by saintly people and families during the warI will mention a few of themIn the Novogrudok region which is today in Belarus one of those saved was a baby Bella Dzienciolska Her parents had entrusted her to a farmer to hide She was blonde and did not look like a Jewish child but at two years old she already spoke Yiddish So the farmer made a hole under the floor and kept her there during the day for a year until she forgot to speak He then took her out and told the neighbours that a relatives child was staying with them Bella Dzienciolska suvived the war and fifty years later returned to the farm and found the hole under the floorboards where she had been hiddenOther children were hidden and raised by nuns and churchmen in abbeys monasteries churches and hospitals and schools run by the Church In the small town of Licskowke in Eastern Galicia Father Michael Kujita hid eight year old Anita Helfgott a fugitive from the ghetto of Skole in his parsonage Later a Catholic couple Josef and Paulina Matusiewicz gave her sanctuary She survived the war In Cz stochowa in Poland Genowefa Starczewka Korczak gave sanctuary to a little Jewish girl Celina Berkowitz shortly before her parents were killed When the Nazis executed Genowefas husband she was forced to place her Jewish charge and her own two daughters in a Catholic orphanage But each weekend she brough all three girls home In the Siedlce region east of Warsaw a poor peasant widow gave shelter to two Jewish girls Eva aged 11 and Batja aged 5 sisters who had escpaed from the Warsaw ghetto and wandered for several moths through the Polish countrysideFearing betrayal the peasant woman took Ester and Batja for sanctuary to Sister Stanislawa Jozwikowska in the Heart of Jesus convent near the village of Skorzec I was dirty ill weak and full of lice Batja recalled years later The nuns washed me thoroughly put me into soft pajamas and put me in a clean bed Despite the convent being occupied by German soldiers nobody knew of the girls Jewish identity except the Mother Superior andSister Stanislawa Jozwikowska Sixty years after having been given shelter Batja recalled Mother Superior Beata Bronislawa Hryniewicz healed me she recovered my soul by great love she pampered me as her own child she dressed me nice and neat she combed my hair and tied ribbons in my plaits she taught me manners she was from an aristocratic noble family She was strict but fair with my duties to pray to study to work on my character to obey etc but every step was with love love love Children who were rescued by righteous gentiles included Israel Lau later Chief Ashkenazic rabbi of Israel and Aharon Barak out of the Kovno Ghetto in a suitcase as a child and hidden by a Lithuanian farmer later President of the Supreme Court of Israel from 1995 until the middle of 2006Many people chose to help out of moral reasons or out of love for their charges These people were SaintsThese stories are being re examined at a time when some like Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei deny the Holocaust happened while working to carry out a real holocaust against the Jews while others forget history and aim to dismantle the Jewish State built to a large extent by Holocaust survivors
