The Holocaust is the systematic annihilation of six million Jews during World War 2. In 1933 nine million Jews lived in the 21 countries of Europe that would be military occupied by the Nazis during the war. By 1945 two out of every three European Jews had been killed. 1.5 million children were murdered. This figure includes more than 1.2 million Jewish children, tens of thousands of Gypsy children and thousands of handicapped children.

The Holocaust is a history of enduring horror and sorrow. It seems as though there is no spark of human concern, no act of humanity, to lighten that dark history. Yet there were acts of courage and human decency during the Holocaust - this site focus attention on men, who risked their lives to help Jews escape the Nazi genocide:

Wilm Hosenfeld
Oskar Schindler
Raoul Wallenberg
Kurt Gerstein

Today their names are known to millions as household words for courage.
