Righteous Among the Nations


January 27th marked International Holocaust Remembrance day; a day set by the United Nations General Assembly to commemorate the victims of the Nazi regime. In this highly informative KML, you are able to geographically explore the lives of people designated "Righteous among the Nations". These people are defined as non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust. BeadieJay, a member of the Google Earth Community uses her passion for all things geospatial to pay tribute to each of these "righteous" people.
