Avenue of the Just
Rescuers and the Righteous
Each tree along the Avenue of the Just at the Yad Vashem memorial in Jerusalem bears the name of a Christian who saved Jewish lives during the Holocaust. Oral histories of ten of these courageous people recall their hopes and fears in time of tragedy, speak of the underground "trafficking in human cargo," describe the elaborate deceptions necessary to elude German soldiers, and profess guilt for surviving when their relatives died. Color and black-and-white. 55 minutes. Anti-Defamation League.
