"Anyone can go to the Holocaust museum [in Washington DC] but not everyone gets this experience." ~A. Speitel (student, 17)
Tibor Rubin, Medal of Honor recipient and Holocaust survivor
Corporal Tibor Rubin covered the withdrawal of his unit against a superior enemy force on October 30, 1950, and helped his fellow POWs survive while imprisoned in Korea from 1950 to 1953. He is also a Holocaust survivor from Hungary. He was awarded the Medal of Honor on September 23, 2005, after a review of the military records of Jewish-American veterans whose heroism might have been overlooked.
