The annals of heroic Jews who ignored relentless life-threatening Nazi persecution in order to save their fellow brothers and sisters have been featured and explored extensively at Yad Vashem for decades as part of the wider theme of Jewish responses to the Shoah. The subject is often referred to as Rescue by Jews during the Holocaust.
