Unit 1012 will honor and always remember German Pastor, Hermann Maas, every year on September 27, as he passed away at the age of 93 on that date in 1970. We will remember and honor him for saving the lives of many Jews during World War II and he rightfully deserves to be recognized by the State of Israel as Righteous among the Nations. His story should be an inspiration for us to support victims’ rights and defend the use of the death penalty.
