    Sorry, couldn’t help myself. Very good list though. Humanity never ceases to amaze me (both good and bad).

    I have been to Auschwitz and it gave me nightmares for days looking at to what an extremely pitiful level humanity can drop in their actions towards their own fellow human beings. Salute to these brave people who stood against one of the biggest evils in this world and over that they still give us hope that humanity still has a chance because of people like them.

    I’ve always wondered why the jews didn’t help themselves. The vision of jews running to line up against walls to be shot is as shocking for their compliance and lack of trying to escape as it is for the actual murders.


    In all my years of schooling. NOT once in any HISTORY class did Oskar Schindler and these people were even written or mentioned. HOW dare history books in schools be so limited and many biased. . NO MATTER what. I FEEL there should be a feature film in which these people are portrayed and others. I LOVE history. HOWEVER. It he nice to have learned more bout ww2 and its great hero’s. From Tuskegee to these people listed.

    Diana Budisavljevic, Austrian married to a Serbian doctor Budisavljevic/Zagreb/ in the ustashi fascist state of Croatia/ realised that millions of Serbs were seriously endangered by laws installed against Serbians ,Jews and Roma.The first termination camps were installed in the mountain of Velebit/ Jadovno 40.000 killed,mainly Serbs/.Then Pavelic ustashi leader ordered opening of a system of 26 termination camps in Croatia and Bosnia. About a million orthodox Serbs were killed,tortured, or expelled from Croatia.The only European ustashi camp for children was opened in Jasterbarsko .467 Serbian babies and children died there. Croatian genocide has never been properly condemned and punished. One of the most shameful page of European history is also JASENOVAC termination camp where more than half a million Serbs were killed. Diana Budisavljevic with her associates saved more than 12 000 Serbian children from the horror of Croatian fascism.
