The book, “Two Among the Righteous Few - A Story of Courage in the Holocaust”, recounts the true story of the dynamic and heroic sacrifice made by a young Dutch Christian couple named Frans and Mien Wijnakker who saved the lives of over 24 Jews during the Nazi occupation of Holland during World War II. At a time when being Jewish or harboring Jews meant sure death, this couple put aside their own safety to do what was ethically right.
“Yad Vashem”, is a very special Holocaust Memorial and Museum in Jerusalem. The courageous Wijnakkers have been honored with a plaque as being “Righteous Among The Nations” at Yad Vashem, which is an honor bestowed upon non-Jewish people who helped save Jewish lives during the Holocaust and World War II.
