French hero who saved hundreds of Jewish children dies aged 108
RIP, Georges Loinger: WWII French resistance member saved at least 350 Jewish children by smuggling them across French/Swiss border. One trick: dress kids as mourners & take them to cemetery, where they’d climb over ladder to freedom. H/T
“French Resistance hero Georges Loinger, who used his ingenuity and athletic prowess to save the lives of hundreds of Jewish children during World War II, has died at the age of 108.” Rest In Peace, hero.🇫🇷
During the Holocaust, there were many perpetrators who murdered. There were far more victims who were murdered. There were far, far more bystanders who witnessed murder. And there were a few, too few, extraordinary heroes who prevented murder.
