One Person Can Make a Difference: Righteous Among the Nations – Rescuers During the Holocaust
Guest speaker Gail Rosenthal
When learning the history of WWII, often the stories of rescue and resistance are not included. Non-Jewish rescuers and others who resisted in Nazi-occupied Europe changed the history of the Holocaust. Yes, one person can make a difference!
