Austrian man leaves $2.4 million to village who saved family from Nazis

Austrian man leaves $2.4 million to village who saved family from Nazis

Eric Schwam, a 90 year old Austrian man has left a bequest to a French village as a gesture of gratitude decades after residents took in his family during the second World War. The village (Le Chambon-sur-Lignon), located in South-east France, had protected thousands of Jews and has a long-standing reputation for shielding people from persecution. Schwan had arrived at the village in 1943.

Take advantage on the sentiments that unify everybody. Act out of kindness not personal gain. It’s a harder route. The one less traveled by. Look at everybody the way you look at your loved ones. We’re all convinced we’re each other’s enemy in this rat race but don’t realize the people who organized it want it this way. A divided populace is one easily manipulated.

As someone doing genocidal research studies in my undergrad (my grandparents survived the Holocaust and WW2), and as someone who knows of this village, I am so happy it gets the recognition it deserves. Even if people, governments, media, etc. try to outgroup others, we can follow the example of the people in this small town and be human. Excellect story :-)
