In memory of Olga Nahlak (1917-1997) // Olga was born in Ukraine. When the country came under Nazi occupation, she and her / husband risked their lives to hide nine Jewish friends in their home. Thanks to her / courage and resourcefulness, the friends all survived. In 1954, Olga moved to Poland, and in / 1963, she settled in Derby. Recognition for her bravery came much later when her story / was made known. Her name is recorded at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, where she is / honoured amongst those called 'Righteous among the Nations.' // The tree was dedicated on 26 Th. January 2017, at the heart of our City. It is a living / reminder of Holocaust Memorial Day, as a symbol of the past and those who are / remembered, of of the future and our hopes for a safer, better world.
