They befriended many of these stars, one of whom, in 1934, asked the sisters to help a Jewish friend escape Germany. In the following years, going "undercover" as eccentric opera fans, and financing their mission using Ida's earnings from her romance novels, they were able to rescue dozens of people from the Nazis.For their bravery and heroism, Ida and Louise received the honor of "Righteous Among Nations" from the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Authority, alongside such notable names as Oskar Schindler and Raoul Wallenberg.
