Polish Consul Konstanty Rokicki and his colleagues from the so-called Lados Group helped to save from the Holocaust more than 800 Jews who came from the Netherlands, Poland, Germany, Austria, France, Slovakia and other European countries in 1942–43. At least twenty of the Survivors are still alive. On 9 October, a new tombstone honoring Consul Rokicki will be unveiled at a cemetery in Lucerne.
