- Norwegian Righteous among the Nations
During the occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany, its Jewish community was subject to persecution and deported to extermination camps. Although at least 764 Jews in Norway were killed, over 1,000 were rescued with the help of non-Jewish Norwegians who risked their lives to smuggle the refugees out of Norway, typically to Sweden . Forty-one of these have been recognized by Yad Vashem as being Righteous among the Nations, as well as the Norwegian resistance movement collectively. This is a list.
