The sculpture commemorates the Righteous Among the Nations, non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews from the Holocaust during World War Two.

When Yad Vashem, the Shoah Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority, was established in 1953 by the Knesset, one of its tasks was to commemorate the "Righteous Among the Nations". The Righteous were defined as non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.
