סיפור הגן
מועצת עיריית חיפה בישיבתה מיום שלישי כ’ אדר א’ תשס"ה 13.2.05 החליטה לקרוא גן ע"ש חסידי אומות העולם תושבי חיפה

בין השנים 1939-1945 בימים האפלים של מלחמת העולם השנה אלפי צעירים ומבוגרים בני אומות שונות בעלי ערכים ומופת אנושי סיכנו נפשם בהצילם יהודים מציפורני הקלגס הנאצי.
אנשי מופת אלה קיבלו החלטה אישית, לעשות הכל ולהציל יהודים מידי האויב הגרמני, תוך כדי סיכון עצמם ובני משפחתם, יש שגם שילמו על כך בחייהם.

חסידי אומות העולם היו מעטים ובמעשיהם הוכיחו, כי דרכי ההצלה והעזרה היו אפשריים, גם אם קשים מאד לביצוע.
על מעשיהם אלה הוכרו עפ"י חוק "יד ושם" כ"חסידי אומות העולם"

העיר חיפה זכתה לכך כי שמונה עשר חסידי אומות העולם קבעו בה את מגוריהם. חלקם נישאו לניצולים אותם הסתירו והצילו, עלו ארצה עם הניצולים, ואחרים הגיעו אלינו בסיוע הניצולים בחלוף השנים. "חסידים" אלה חיו וחיים בקרבנו והתערו בחייה החברתיים והקהילתיים של העיר.

GARDEN IN HONOR OF THE RIGHTEOUS AMONG THE NATIONS, RESIDENTS OF HAIFA

"Whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire worl" (Sanhedrin)

[In one of the rocks the story of the garden appears]
The story of the garden
The Haifa City Council at its meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2005 decided to name a Garden named after the Righteous Among the Nations, residents of Haifa.

Between the years 1939-1945 in the dark days of World War II, thousands of young people and adults from different nations with human values ​​and role models risked their lives by rescuing Jews from the clutches of the Nazi clique.
These exemplary people made a personal decision, to do everything and save Jews from the German enemy, while risking themselves and their family members, some of whom also paid for it with their lives.

The Righteous Among the Nations were few and in their actions proved that the ways of salvation and help were possible, even if very difficult to carry out.
For their actions, they were recognized under the Yad Vashem Law as "Righteous Among the Nations."

The city of Haifa had the privilege of having the eighteen Righteous Among the Nations establish their residence there. Some were married to survivors whom they hid and rescued, immigrated to Israel with the survivors, and others came to us with the help of the survivors over the years. These "Righteous" lived and lived among us and became involved in the social and communal life of the city.
