Thanks to the 1993 epic movie Schindler’s List, we know the story of Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist who saved more than a thousand mostly Polish–Jewish refugees from the Holocaust by employing them in his factories during World War II [Wikipedia]. What most people don’t know is that Schindler wasn’t the only Nazi to save Jews during World War II. Although their number was infinitesimally small, their humanity and bravery — they risked death to rescue Jews — are forever awe-inspiring. We remember and honor the three Nazis linked below.
