Throughout the Holocaust period, in the shadow of persecution at the hands of the Nazi regime, there were Jews who attempted to save their brethren despite being in mortal danger themselves. They worked in ghettos, camps, in the ranks of the partisans, in resistance groups, acting alone or as part of rescue organizations. They forged identity documents, hid and smuggled out Jews, and provided them with food, clothing, medicine and more. Sometimes they worked independently, while at other times they were helped by non-Jews who were later recognized as Righteous Among the Nations. Some of their stories are featured here.
