Righteous Among the Nations who helped Rabbi Lau

Rabbi Israel Meir Lau surrounded by his family and the two daughters of the Righteous, Feodor Mikhailichenko, in the Garden of the Righteous Among the Nations

Last week, Yad Vashem hosted a number of special events.
On Tuesday August 4,we had a very emotional event to honor the Russian prisoner who helped Rabbi Israel Meir Lau survive in Buchenwald. You can read all about it here: http://www1.yadvashem.org/yv/en/about/events/2009/righteous_mikhailichenko.asp
and at: http://www1.yadvashem.org/righteous_new/russia/mikhailichenko.html

As Rabbi Lau said during the ceremony, he and his entire family owe Feodor Mikhailichenko a debt of gratitude, and it was very moving to see one of Rabbi Lau’s grandchildren seek out Feodor’s daughters to personally thank them.
