Yad Vashem honors Germans in Berlin

Their names will be engraved on the memorial wall of Yad Vashem.

In Germany during the war, these people gave shelter to Jews. Many offered their homes and businesses as hideouts and provided food and medical aid. They also helped others in their flight to freedom, even though they put themselves in danger by doing so.

The mayor of Berlin attended the awards ceremony.

About 11,300 individuals have been named Righteous Gentiles. A total of 300 have been Germans.
