This tree was planted here today in honor of Sergeant Charles Coward for his bravery in the Auschwitz labour camp by saving many, many Jews.
"As a prisoner of war in the Auschwitz labour camp, Sergeant Coward was appointed Red Cross Liaison for his 1400 fellow British prisoners." He used his position to get food and contraband and gave them to the Jews.
"He also exchanged coded messages with the British authorities via letters to a fictitious Mr. William Orange, in which he gave notes on the conditions of prisoners in the Labour camps as well as details of the arrivals of trainloads of Jewish prisoners to the extermination camp." By this, he helped save them and he got out of the camp.
Sergeant Charles Coward was honored by being named, "Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem and had a tree planted in his honor in the Avenue of Righteous Gentiles in Israel in 1963."
