Tonight’s match at Teddy Stadium against Beitar Jerusalem began with a very emotional and moving moment.

Ahead of the opening whistle, a special ceremony took place as the Goldhar family honored Ms. Barbara Rybczynska whose late mother Aniela Dembinska together with the late Mikolaj and Helena Sajowski were instrumental in saving the life of Sala Armel Goldhar from perishing during the Holocaust.

At tremendous risk to themselves for a period of over 2 years they passed off Sala as their own daughter and granddaughter. This week Mikolaj and Helena Sajowski will be honored at Yad Vashem in the Righteous Among the Nations Award Ceremony. Ms. Barbara Rybczynska will accept the medal and certificate of the Righteous Among the Nations on their behalf.
