THE HEROIC JEWISH DEFENSE COMMITTEE THAT RESCUED 3000 CHILDREN

The Comité de Défense des Juifs was established in Brussels, Belgium in 1942 in order to protect the Jewish population from Nazi persecution. They assisted and hid approximately 10,000 adults and 3000 children, from 1942-44. Eighteen members of this group were honored in 2018 by B’nai B’rith International with the Jewish Rescuer Citation. See a touching film about this heroic group and their legacy.
