A Holocaust Story
Connections to the Righteous Among Nations Award
2) The second thing the Rosans do is they take in two of Jacob's younger brothers. They first take in Sholom but he ends up dying by catching scarlet fever. Next they take in David he does not get sick and lives healthy. David is able to go outside because of his blonde hair and blues where Jacob is not because he has dark hair and brown eyes. The Rosan could get in even more trouble now that they have two Jewish boys living in their household, but the Roslans do not care. They love these boys like they are their own and are willing to risk their lives.
3) The third and final thing the Rosans do to earn this award is the risky they take to keep the boys safe. Hiding Jewish boys in their home during the war is risky enough but the Rosans do not stop their. The family creates hiding places in their homes so when people come over they won't see them. They continuously move to different homes so they can keep hiding, moving from place to place they need to be careful because if they are found by Nazis they could be killed. The Rosans lie to doctors, neighbors, and Nazis in order to keep safe. The family sells their apartment to be able to get the surgery Jacob needs when he becomes very ill.
