May 14 — The Day of Remembrance of Ukrainians who rescued Jews during WWII

Navigation and useful materials

2,659 Ukrainians have been awarded the title of Righteous Among the Nations, with which Israel commemorates non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews from extermination by the Nazis.

There are even more recognized rescuers only in Poland, the Netherlands, and France.

Myths about Russia as “Europe’s main savior from Nazism” do not stand the test of facts and figures at any level.

Do not forget to distinguish between statements and historical facts and respect humanity; today, for the first time, Ukraine officially celebrates the Day of Remembrance of Ukrainians who saved Jews during the Second World War.

You can find out more about this day from colleagues from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
