Artist's Description

The approach to the Hall of Remembrance is lined with trees planted in honor of non-Jewish men and women – “Righteous Among the Nations” – who, at the risk of their own lives, attempted to rescue Jews from the Holocaust. Several of the trees honor members of the Christian clergy, among them a Franciscan priest in Assisi, the bishop of the Greek island of Zakinthos, a Polish nun in Lithuania and a French Protestant pastor. More than 20,000 persons have been honored with the title “Righteous Among the Nations”.(Jewish Virtual Library)
