It is estimated that more than 62,000 Jewish men, women and children were saved from certain death by the Swiss Righteous Carl Lutz in Budapest. This gesture, of extraordinary humanity, is considered to be the largest rescue action of the Second World War. 

This humanist’s commitment has a scope that goes beyond an historical event. It is a source of reflection and commitment; it embodies values and courage of significant relevance.
