Gertrud Steinl


Gertrud Steinl was the last surviving German honored for saving Jewish lives during the Holocaust. She was a supervisor at a company in Poland when a co-worker confided to her that she was Jewish. Stenl was able to send the woman to live with her parents, saving her life. In 1979, she was recognized by Israel as Righteous Among the Nations, the country’s highest honor to non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.

Not sure what to say?

What a remarkable life Gertrud Steinl had. The loss of a spouse, parent or friend who has endured a long life is still heart breaking. Gertrud surely had a life filled with treasured memories with loved ones and friends. God promises a reunion when all can smile and find joy in reminiscing about those good times.

I was so moved to read about this good Samaritan and her family. Be assured that her godly deeds are deeply stored in God's memory. May the God of all comfort console this family during this difficult time.
