"We did what we had to do," said Halina Szaszkiewicz, 89. "There was nothing heroic about it."
But the Jewish officials honoring them see it differently.
"You, the righteous of the world, think your behavior was ordinary, but we all know it was something more than that. It was truly extraordinary," Stanlee Stahl, the executive vice president of the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous, the group that organized the luncheon, told them in a speech.
