Medals of the Saviors minted by the IRWF

The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation has decided to issue commemorative medals of numerous saviors of humanity. This concerns a collection of artistic pieces developed with the objective that they transcend as physical testimonies that attest to the path taken through life of persons who distinguished themselves for their united actions during the Holocaust.

The extraordinary actions on behalf of thousands of people, mainly Jews, whom those saviors rescued from a certain death at the hands of the Nazis and their allies, have converted them in truly outstanding heroes of modern times.

The Medal are presented as awards to outstanding personalities coming from all walks of life and of all social, religious and racial backgrounds who have demonstrated through their work an unwavering commitment to upholding the humanitarian values which all these saviors, -who risking their own lives, saved thousands condemned to death by the Nazi regime-, stand for.
