- The title of "Righteous Among Nations" was bestowed by Yad Vashem, of the State of Israel, to Piotr BUDNIK. Piotr owned a farm in Kaczanowka. He managed to free from the ghetto the three HELRAJCH children: Adela, Estera and Zeew and hid them for 18 months. Estera and Zeev fell ill with typhoid fever and Piotr took them to the forest and took care of them there. He himself caught typhus and got meningitis. All survived. After the war he married Adela and left with her for Israel.
