At Yad Vashem — The World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, there’s a special section dedicated to “The Righteous Among the Nations,” non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust. Among those honored are Franciscus and Hermina Wijnakker (known as Frans and Mien), a Christian couple in the Netherlands who saved the lives of more than two-dozen Jews.

Author Marty A. Brounstein has written a book, “Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust,” about the Wijnakkers’ selfless acts, and will hold several lectures around the Valley (see details below). Brounstein has a meaningful personal connection to the story and its heroes, which he reveals in his talk.
