Who we are

The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous provides financial support to more than 600 non-Jews who rescued Jews during the Holocaust and preserves their legacy through a national education program.

  

Ask A Rescuer

Rescue during the Holocaust was rare. Current figures show that less than 0.1% of the non-Jewish population of Nazi-occupied Europe participated in rescue.

Eight rescuers have volunteered to answer your questions about their experiences during the Holocaust. These rescuers are featured on this page. Knud Dyby, another rescuer featured on this page, recently passed away at the age of 96. The questions students asked him and his responses are still available to view.
