Design of Righteous among the Nations memorial chosen
March 20, 2014
Warsaw city authorities have chosen the design for a monument to honor the thousands of Poles who risked their lives to rescue Jews during the Holocaust, sometimes hiding them in their homes for years, Polish Radio reported.
Israel calls people "righteous among the nations".
The winning design is in the form of a giant curling ribbon inscribed with the names of the people and organizations that rescued Jews during the war.
The monument, funded by the city of Warsaw and the Polish government, will stand on Grzybowski Square, which was a part of the Jewish Ghetto created by the Nazi German occupiers.
It was designed by Piotr Musialowski, Paulina Pankiewicz and Michal Adamczyk.
