Antoni Pilat and his family risked their lives to help their good friends and neighbors.  At times endangering the welfare of his own children, he knew he had to do what was right, even though it was not easy.

Zosia Dziedzic's family risked their lives helping to hide Jews during the Holocaust.  Opening their home whenever they could, they were a safe haven for many families hiding and trying to survive

RIGHTEOUS AMONG THE NATIONS

The Righteous Among the Nations, honored by Yad Vashem, are non-Jews who took great risks to save Jews during the Holocaust. Rescue took many forms and the Righteous came from different nations, religions and walks of life. What they had in common was that they protected their Jewish neighbors at a time when hostility and indifference prevailed.

Do you have a story to share?  Someone that was an upstander not just a bystander?  We would love to hear from you.
