Jan and Antonina Zabinski: heroism which renews my faith in humanity.
What a beautiful story of selfless sacrifice against a backdrop of unimaginable, incomprehensible horror. Angels, Jan and Antonina Zabinski, harboured 300 Jewish children, taking the risk that the nazis (I never give that word a capital ‘N’, it doesn’t deserve it) would find them, discover what they were doing and do unthinkable things to them before killing them…I can’t digest it. Beautiful, beautiful people, examples of the goodness that can be exhibited by mankind, goodness in the extreme. The courage to do what the Zabinskis did, that they placed themselves in such horrific, diabolical, unimaginable danger….then and now, there is such evil in the world, such depravity, it can result in such despair but reading stories of such heroism, it reminds me that there is love around us and that that love, with courage, trumps evil and can save us.
