Hi ANNY! Sorry to not agree with you..but the numbers do matter,firstly,to
all those that were able to survive, and secondly because of the fact that
unlike some others and at obvious risk to himself and his family,he did it
..wholesale. kmo she omrim b'ivrit : kol hakavod! cornel

Dear all,

I and my family were saved by Mrs. Popovici but the papers came from him.
Our gratitude has been expressed then, my Mother gave her what she wanted,
my Pekingese dog. It had been the only thing she ever wanted and in the end
she got it, which was hard but acceptable ,even for me, whose dog it was and
a real friend in need.

That really is beside the point. In Hebrew we say that every living being
is an entire world (Olam b'meolo) so the number REALLY is of no importance
at all. He was the only one who helped and that's the main thing

haggling about is seems irrelevant and belittles the deed.
