A Jewish organisation called 'From the Depths' has been delivering basic supplies to elderly residents of Warsaw who helped save Jews during the Holocaust as a mark of reciprocity amid the coronavirus pandemic, which is forcing many older people to isolate themselves amid the higher risk of death from contagion.
"It's our turn as young people and my turn as a Jew to repay this honour and this debt of gratitude that we have for what they did back and even in this tiny way. We'll never be able to repay these people what they truly did but to turn around and give thanks and honour through service and through helping and even through giving these basic necessities is something that I'm incredibly proud and honoured to be able to do," said Jonny Daniels, the president of the organisation.
Food and supplies were delivered on Wednesday to a number of individuals labeled 'Righteous Among the Nations,' a title given to non-Jews who helped save Jewish families from the Holocaust.
The groceries were delivered using a London-style taxi converted to a delivery car for the occasion. Daniels wears a mask and gloves to limit the chances of spreading COVID-19 while he does the delivery runs.
