0
Aleksandra Cybulska, a 100-year-old Polish woman, and her late husband Kazimierz, were recognized as Righteous among the Nations by Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, reports Ofer Aderet for Haaretz.
The recognition was presented to Aleksandra by Israel’s deputy ambassador to Poland, Ruth Cohen-Dar.
The two protected a Jewish girl, Sonia Berkowicz, and had been friends of Sonia’s parents. Sonia was given a false certificate declaring that she had been baptized a Christian, and in 1946 was handed over to a Jewish organization that rescued Jewish orphans after the war.
