Khmelnitsky Charitable Foundation "Hesed Besht" takes care of Righteous Among the Nations - people, who saved Jews during World War II from death and had no relationship to Jews. Unfortunately, today very few of these left: compelling people takes time to eternity. But their memory and their behavior also remains forever. Even after the death of the Righteous she lives and multiplies, even if was not for the public life of a brave man Savior. That is exactly what happened to Jadwiga Mazur.
On the eve of the World Day of Remembrance of the Holocaust (27 January) Community Center to visiting students from the 15 th school history teacher with Gartner Natalia. Here they held an open lesson on "the Holocaust on the tail" in one museum in Western Ukraine to eat Holocaust memory. When the language has reached Righteous Among the Nations, teacher talked about a pupil of the sixth grade, in which the grandmother saved Jews from Nazi invaders. This fact interested community center staff and it was agreed to further meetings.
Later Natalia came to the museum with his student - Daria Prokopyshyn. They brought documents Righteous, her picture and copies of diplomas and medals. History Jadwiga Mazur translated documents and museum employees - to register. Unfortunately, before its identity was not known: heroine did not live up time, when this issue started to climb actively in society. 2006 it also was posthumously awarded the title "Righteous of Ukraine", as evidenced by the documents of the Jewish Council of Ukraine, signed and. Levitas. The title of Righteous Among the Nations in many countries (even those, that did not participate in World) equivalent to the rank of Hero. But in Ukraine, where the number of extremely large Righteous, something the matter has not found practical implementation at the national level.

Copies of the documents will remain in the Museum of Holocaust on the tail and a portrait of Jadwiga Mazur has already taken place among the other pictures righteous.
