Such fighting groups often assembled in churches pretending to pray and not attracting attention, then they stormed Nazi offices for ID cards travel permits and food vouchers. Everyone in the group is a hero, they saved many Jews and others that were hiding.

Had the privilege to meet him in 2003 at his office in Cuneo, when I was living in Saluzzo, Piemonte, not far from Cuneo.

The synagogue in Cuneo is small with beautiful frescoed walls, it is opposite where the Ghetto was. The Family was at that time the last remaining Jewish family in Cuneo...The Synagogue is opened once a year when a Rabbi comes down from Torino for Yom Kippur. I was there for Kol Nidre and from nowhere people turned join the family. The synagogue, as other synagogues in the towns below Torino, are now under the responsibility of the Torino synagogue, however the family are the custodians of the Cuneo synagogue.

Money has nothing to do with bravery your interjecting money only sullies an otherwise remarkable true story.
Most Jews lost everything including their lives.
