On a beautiful October morning, people gathered on campus to dedicate a monument—and to remember those who risked their lives to save the lives of others.
A gift from the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities, the new monument in front of Christ the King Chapel honors Father Pierre-Marie Benoit, Irena Sendler and the more than 24,000 non-Jews who saved persecuted Jews during the Holocaust.
