At the Special Olympics, I saw many brave people, but this man was incredible. Although all the others had reached the finish long time, he went on, alone on the track with an enormous courage and perseverance. Speed or being the first didn't matter, only finishing was important to him. For everyone witnessing his battle against his limitations, it was so exiting, when he finished, it was with such a relief that it brought tears to many eyes.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, German Lutheran pastor, theologian, anti-fascist hanged by the Nazis two weeks before his camp was liberated for his involvement in the Abwehr plot to kill Hitler. He refused the opportunity to escape in order to protect others from retaliation. (rw)

Tatsuo Osako, a naval officer from Chiba, Japan has been named "The Japanese Schindler" by many historians. He, along with several colleagues, were responsible for transporting thousands of Jewish citizens from German-occupied territories to safety. Although Japan had an alliance with the Nazis during the war, their government did not adhere to the racial policies being advocated by Hitler and his officials, and men like Osako were credited with having saved hundreds of people.
