YOUR STORY

Our website is a place where we recount the aid given to Jews during the Nazi occupation of Poland. This site is dedicated above all to those who were awarded the honorable title of Righteous Among the Nations. We would like it, however, to help gather various stories of the intertwined Polish and Jewish wartime fates, even those not directly related to persons awarded the Righteous Medal.

This site is dedicated above all to those who were awarded the honorable title of Righteous Among the Nations. We would like it, however, to help gather various stories of the intertwined Polish and Jewish wartime fates, even those not directly related to persons awarded the Righteous Medal.

Many people still alive today carry stories of the relations of Poles and Jews during the occupation: the stories of their own lives, or those of their families, friends, neighbors... These stories are often unknown to anyone other than the participants or their close ones, and they are no less important than the stories of the Righteous and the persons they saved. These stories also bring out the truth of both the noble and the wicked in mankind and in our history.

We encourage every one of you to send in such slivers of human fate, still preserved by memory. We will do everything in our power to verify them, confront them with the existing documents, and publicize. With them, we will write new pages of the endless story of the struggle between good and evil – where the names of the Righteous are written already.

These pages have a place for Your Story..
