    A beautifully written piece of history, showing that kindness and compassion towards the "less-fortunate" reaps better rewards later. The fact that the children of the holocaust survivor tracked down the name of the commanding officer, Zoltan Kubinyi, shows a love for a man who literally laid down his life, so others could live.

    What a story. Thank you for sharing it with the world. Having a righteous man as head of a Nazi labor camp is almost unbelievable. But what a blessing he was to the men in his camp. I will remember the name of Zoltan Kubinyi, and how he saved almost 100 men from death.
    While it is true that many groups of people were also sent to the death camps; Gypsies, the handicapped, the mentally ill and homosexuals, the vast majority of those killed were Jews. It was Hitler's plan to kill them all, and take their money, goods and property to fund his war of expansion across Europe.

    One important thing to remember about the Holocaust is that Jews weren't the only victims.
