A Holocaust Story
Connections to the Righteous Among Nations Award
1) The first thing they did that makes them deserve the award is the fact that the Roslans took in Jacob. The fact that the family was willing to risk their lives, AND their children's lives is incredible. They are a respectable family.
2) The second thing is that the family tried to take in all of his brothers along side him. Alex and Mela tried to take care of Sholom but he passed on, but the fact that they tried makes them brave. What makes it even better is how they took in David as well, and he survived. Taking care of 2 Jews in a small area with the SS lurking around is a huge thing.
3) The third, but not last thing is that Alex sold the family's apartment just to get Jacob his scarlet fever surgery. The fact that he was risking everything for this boy makes it an even braver act of valor.
Quote/ Citation Panel
"Hey Genyek, you're not so bad for a Jew."
This sentence spoke out strong because it shows that not all the people in Europe hate Jews and that they're really not bad people. It shows that when people hear bad things about someone, they stick to their assumptions but when they get to know them, the person really isn't that bad.
