Honouring the goodness of a human heart.

One of our orchestra members is the son of a child survivor of the holocaust who was hidden by a kind and loving family on a farm in Southeastern France.  Recently the family who hid this child of the holocaust was honoured for their good deeds with a Righteous Among the Nations designation by Yad Vashem.  This is a very special and touching story which we would like to share with you.
