A Greek woman, 92, reunited for the first time with Jews she saved from the Nazis during World War Two.

Melpomeni Dina is the name of this woman. She is an example for many due to the courage she had. She risked her own life to save the lives of others.

‘Now I Can Die Quietly’, said the brave woman when holding the hands of those she hid, fed and protected for more than 75 years ago when she was a teenager.

The reunion took place at the Holocaust memorial museum in Jerusalem, more than seven decades later.

This event was one of its kind due to the Jews she saved, siblings Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor, brought their 20 children and grandchildren to the event.

This special day proved that this brave 92-year-old woman didn´t only save these Jews’ lives, but their generations.

There are no words to describe this feeling. It is very emotional for us to be together again,” Ms. Yanai told reporters.

We were hidden in her house. She saved all my family. Six persons… you can’t imagine how dangerous it was for her, for her family, to keep us all… They saved our lives.”
