The Righteous, neither saints nor heroes
in praise of the daily-life virtues
The deeds, sometimes the entire life, of the Righteous, are there to prove that every human being can take up a personal responsibility to defend the weakest people and oppose the anti-democratic and repressive drifts of society.
Not only the Righteous among the nations awarded in Yad Vashem, but all the world's Righteous should be remembered, honored and praised for their key contribution to the fate of the human kind.
Learning about their biographies helps the construction of educational memory, able to speak to the younger people's hearts and minds.
