Juana Bormann (or Johana Borman)  was a prison guard at several Nazi concentration camps, including Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen, and was executed as a war criminal at Hamelin, Germany after a trial in 1945. One of her favorite "games" was unleashing her starving shepherd dog on helpless prisoners -- hence her nickname "The woman with the dogs."

"In 1939, right after the Germans invaded, Warsaw began to see trainloads of blonde, blue-eyed children being taken to "Germanization" camps in Germany.  Everyone in Warsaw knew about a certain group of women...when the trains pulled in, they tried to convince the German guards to accept bribes in exchange for some of the children."  Irena Sendler was one of these women.  Later she did everything she could to save Jewish children, including the ones in this photo. (1944)

Wilhelm Adalbert Hosenfeld (2 May 1895 – 13 August 1952), originally a teacher, was a German Army officer who rose to the rank of Hauptmann by the end of the war. He helped to hide or rescue Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland, and is perhaps most remembered for helping Polish-Jewish pianist and composer Władysław Szpilman to survive, hidden, in the ruins of Warsaw during the last months of 1944.  In June 2009 he was posthumously recognized as a Righteous among the Nations by Yad Vashem.
