It appears to be an idyllic holiday moment: two children gaze at a Christmas tree. In fact, the children are Jewish, and the photograph helped save their lives during the Holocaust. As we approach end-of-year holiday celebrations, we remember those who gave the greatest gift of all: refuge in a time of need. Join us live on Facebook to hear several stories: In one, a Muslim family, under the cover of darkness, finds shelter for a fleeing Jewish family. In another, after the war, a German Jewish refugee creates a sanctuary for dozens of children after losing most of her own family in the Holocaust.
