A saviour is a saviour


Regardless of his pyschological motivations, Victor Kugler was a hero who had put his life at risk to hide Anne Frank.

He was one of the corageous saviours who confronted evil by reaching others to those in plight.

Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved 100,000 Hungarian Jews, was not alone. Thousands of saviours around Europe are the living proof that one decent person can always make a difference. They saved innocent people, but above all, they saved human dignity.
