The B’nai B’rith World Center and the Jewish National Fund will jointly hold a ceremony in commemoration of those Jews who “rescued fellow Jews during the years of torment in Europe” on Holocaust Memorial Day on April 8.

The ceremony will honor Otto Komoly, President of the Zionist Federation in Hungary, who saved thousands of Jewish children through both establishment of a network of fifty two shelters under the protection of the Red Cross.

Komoly oversaw the rescue of five thousand Jewish children and the aliyah of some fifteen thousand Hungarian Jews by way of Romania during the war.
