The Yad Vashem will honor next week a number of “Righteous Gentiles” who risked their lives during World War II to save the lives of Jews. Dr. Carl Hermann, of West Germany, who died, and his wife, Eva Hermann, will be honored for saving Jewish lives in the town of Manheim throughout the war and suffering prison sentences for their activities. Carl was imprisoned for two years and Eva for three. She will be here for the ceremony.

Other trees will be planted next week in honor of Hendrik and Emma-Anna Jonkers, Alice Alida Balvers, M.A. Nutting-Disch and Simon Schoon, all of Holland; Pastor John van de Stegge of Belgium, and Jan and Maria Caraj of Czechoslovakia.
