Eva Collins received the prestigious Righteous Among the Nations award on behalf of her late mother, Rena Skovronska and shared her story with us

The Embassy of Israel in Australia, in conjunction the Gandel Foundation and Yad Vashem (The World Holocaust Remembrance Centre), awarded the late Rena Skowronska and the late Wilhelm Spisky Righteous Among the Nations, one of the highest honours the State of Israel can bestow.

 The event honoured Mrs. Rena Skovronska and Mr. Wilhelm Alois Spisky as Righteous Among the Nations at a ceremony in Melbourne.  This honour is awarded by Yad Vashem and the State of Israel to recognize individuals who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust without expectation of any reward. The ceremony honoured Mrs. Rena Skowronska-Skovell and Mr. Wilhelm Alois Spisky for their efforts to save Jews during the Holocaust.

 Mrs. Rena Skovronska is being honoured for her selfless bravery in saving Joseph Skowronska and his then wife. Rena and Joseph fell in love, and after securing safe passage to Paris for Joseph's former wife, the two started a life together. They emigrated to Australia in 1958

 Mrs. Rena Skovronska's daughter, Ms. Eva Collins received the award on behalf of her late mother, and she shares her story with us
