"My life was spared multiple times during the war by Upstanders who secretively gave me food for my family, had me flee areas where later prisoners would be taken to death camps as well as help me and my family hide from Nazi soldiers days before our liberation. The most surprising Upstanders, during the war, were 2 Nazi Officers, one of whom pulled me out of line-ups that were headed to death camps."

"My biggest advice to all youth is you must give respect to get it back. I didn't like everyone but I respected everyone, including Nazi soldiers and bullies. This attitude kept me alive. Please join me in taking the Upstander Pledge below!"


I believe that everyone has a right to live in a community where they feel safe, included, valued, and accepted regardless of differences.

I pledge to be respectful of others and stand up against bullying whenever and wherever I see it.
