A Virtual Cemetery created by Michael Harrington

Heroes of the Holocaust

These extraordinary people went above and beyond the call of duty by putting their own lives in jeopardy by doing whatever they could by any means possible to save as many Jews as they could during the Holocaust. May they forever be blessed!
