Officer in "The Pianist" honored by Israel

Capt. Wilm Hosenfeld is now a Righteous

Yad Vashem's authorities announced to the Associated Press that they decided to posthumously award Capitain Wilm Hosenfeld with the title of Righteous Among the Nations. The man had adhered to Nazism quite early in 1939, but he wrote his horror and disgust for the annihilation of Jews it perpetrated. He saved two Jews including Władysław Szpilman, the musician whose story was made famous by Roman Polanski's movie "The Pianist".
