More than 100 people attended a movie night at Lubavitch on the Palisades of Tenafly to pay tribute to Nikolai Kiselev, a non-Jewish Russian partisan, who managed to save more 200 Jews of Dolginovo (Dalhinev) during World War II, at great personal risk. Kiselev later was recognized as Righteous Among the Nations, an official title awarded by Yad Vashem on behalf of the state of Israel and the Jewish people to non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust. The title is awarded by a special commission, headed by an Israeli Supreme Court justice, according to a well-defined set of criteria and regulations.

Bertha Cremer-Karasek, one of the survivors, told the audience her story.
