“The Righteous Among the Nations Who Risked Themselves to Save Jews"
...Remembering the rescuers was included in Yad Vashem’s mission from the very beginning. Mordechai Shenhabi, who drew the first plans for the commemoration of the murdered Jews of Europe, used the term Khassidei Umot HaOlam [the Righteous Among the Nations] to describe the non-Jewish rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust, and proposed the creation of “a list of Righteous Among the Nations who saved souls or belongings of communities" as one of Yad Vashem's tasks in the detailed program that he presented to the Yishuv leadership in 1945...

...As time went on more Righteous were recognized, and by 1989 close to 2,000 trees had been planted all over the Mount of Remembrance. It was therefore decided to construct a memorial where the names of the Righteous Among the Nations would be perpetuated. Landscape architects Lipa Yahalom and Dan Tsur drew the plans for the Garden of the Righteous, a most serene site of impressive simplicity.

...The attack on Deir Yassin took place after the United Nations proposed on November 29, 1947 (UN Resolution 181) that Palestine be divided into an Arab state and a Jewish one. Jerusalem was to belong to neither state, but was to be administered separately; Deir Yassin lay within the boundaries of the proposed plan for Jerusalem. The Arabs rejected the proposal, and civil war broke out. British rule in Palestine ended on May 14, 1948; Israel declared its independence that day, and several Arab armies invaded at midnight on May 15, triggering the 1948 Arab–Israeli War...
