SKOKIE, Ill. (CBS) — They risked their lives to help victims of the Holocaust and on Wednesday, three people were honored for their selfless acts. One of the survivors who benefited from their courage shared her story with CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot.
Italians Giocondo and Annina Marconi now have a place of honor on the Ferro Fountain of the Righteous, at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. Those two changed the life of Dr. Adina P. Sella forever.
“It shows the world that decency and responsibility are still alive,” Sella said, “Not everybody behaves the way the Germans did.”
