They risked their lives

“They Risked Their Lives – Poles who saved Jews during Holocaust”

I decided to visit the Thompson center in downtown Chicago to visit the food court.

When I arrived I was quickly drawn to the group gathered in the lobby. I decided to take some photos of the event taking place before heading down for some food.

I asked about the event and somebody was kind enough to explain what happened during the Holocaust.

During the Holocaust the Poles risked their lives to save the Jews. If caught all people involved would be killed.

I was moved by the emotions that were displayed and saddened that these things happened.
