"BESA" To Keep The Promise

In commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Calgary Jewish Federation/Yad Vashem is presenting:
Besa: A Code of Honor — Muslim Albanians who Rescued Jews During the Holocaust.

Hiding all 200 Albanian Jewish Families from the Nazi death machine in WWII, these brave and honorable Albanian partriots featured in the exhibit are among 63 who have been recognized by the state of Israel as "Righteous Among the Nations".
