Have you ever heard of Wincenty and Lucja Baranek, Adam and Bronislawa Kowalski or Josef and Wiktoria Ulma?
If not, you’re not alone.
They’re not well-known either in Poland, their homeland, where each of the couples risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.
Poland has taken a step to recognize the heroes, recently issuing commemorative coins to honor them: all Catholics, all killed for their actions.
The significance of the gesture transcends the world of numismatism.
