Dozens of elderly Poles who helped save Jews during World War II were celebrated and praised for their heroism at a lunch in Warsaw, Poland, on Sunday July 15, 2012. The meeting, over a kosher lunch Sunday in an upscale hotel, comes amid a growing appreciation in Poland for the thousands of people who risked their lives to help Jews during the brutal six-year-long Nazi occupation of Poland. Such people, almost all of them Roman Catholics, deny that they are heroes and say they only did what needed to be done.  (AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski)
