Deliberate Acts of Kindness

Subject: Responsibility/Character

Grade Levels: PreK-12



Throughout World War II, citizens of Europe rescued Jews and others from Nazi persecution. In Denmark, most of the Jewish community was boated to Sweden. Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg led an effort that saved thousands of Hungarian Jews. Underground efforts led many Jews to safety, and countless individuals protected Jews in hiding. Whether a rescuer helped save the lives of thousands or just one, the good done by the rescuer impacts the world far into the future.
