Krystyna Danko then and now, a Holocaust survivor showed her recognition for her selflessness and courage to one of the oldest rescuers still alive

A hero of the Holocaust, Krystyna Danko is one of the oldest rescuers still alive. Recently, a Holocaust survivor wanted to show her recognition for her selflessness and courage many years ago reports the Jerusalem Post.

Holocaust survivor from Israel donated money to buy a $1,200 medical bed for a 102-year-old non-Jewish woman from Warsaw, who risked her life to save Jews from the genocide.

Krystyna Danko, who is now deaf and blind, is believed to be the oldest Righteous Among the Nations still living.

Joe Erlichster, 75, on Friday said it was “part of our duty as Jews to recognize what some brave souls in Poland and elsewhere did” during World War II.
