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

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.

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