Righteous Gentiles

By: Gaby, Clay, and Aaron

Intro

Our project is about righteous Gentiles. Obviously, there are many righteous Gentiles that helped during the Holocaust. Each one helped Jews in different ways. For example, Oskar Schindler helped Jews by making them work in his factory instead of having them sent to concentration camps. Irena Sendler helped by giving 2,500 Jews living in the Warsaw Ghetto fake passports. In some cases, these heroes were born heroes, where in other cases, circumstances created the hero. In our case, all of the heroes were created by circumstances. For example, circumstances created Oskar Schindler becoming a hero because he had a factory and he claimed that he needed Jews to help his factory work. This is how he saved many Jews. Also, Irena Sendler became a hero by circumstances because she learned what was happening in the Warsaw ghetto, and she made 2,500 false identity documents. Although these people helped so many jews, each Gentile had regrets after the war that they could have saved more jews. As shown in evidence with the righteous Gentiles, heroes in the Holocaust were often created by circumstances.
