Poland: bishops, chief rabbi recall family slain for sheltering Jews

Catholic World News - January 17, 2011

Two Catholic prelates joined the chief rabbi of Poland on January 16 to commemorate the Holocaust and honor Christians who sheltered Jews from Nazi persecution.

Archibshop Jozef Michalik of Przemysl expressed gratitude to Jews for keeping alive the memory of the Holocaust “because it arouses the conscience of the world that this kind of history cannot repeat itself.”

Archibshop Michalik also announced that a museum would be built in honor of a Polish family that sheltered seven Jews during the Nazi occupation. The father of the family, his pregnant wife, their six children, and the Jews they were hiding were all shot after Nazi soldiers discovered that the family was sheltering Jews.
