Jan and Maria Gajewski lived with four children in Grodzisko Dolne in the district of Leżajsk. The Fingerhuts were their neighbours. In December 1941 Jakub Fingerhut and his two sons, Aaron and Abraham asked the Gajewski family for help. The Poles accepted the Jews. They hid the Jews in the barn and in winter in the attic of their house. The Fingerhut family stayed with the Gajewski family until July 1944. Then they emigrated to the U.S.A.
On Sept. 4, 1996 Jan and Maria Gajewski were awarded the medal of the “Righteous Among the Nations”.
