Berthold Beitz, a young German who arrived in eastern Galicia in July 1941 to work as business manager of an oil refinery, witnessed the ongoing murder of Jews. He decided to take action to save Jews and asked the SS for skilled workers. He then issued false work certificates for them, sheltered and fed them, with the help of his wife. Beitz was honored as a Righteous Among the Nations at Yad Vashem.
