The Nona Pântea home
Independenței Blvd. (former I.C. Brătianu, no. 20)
On I.C. Brătianu street, no. 20, (today Independenței Bulevard), was living the attorney Nona Pântea. She didn`t stay indifferent to the tragedy lived by the Jews during the Pogrom, and when she found out that they were taken out of their home and escorted to the Police Headquarters, she informed her Jewish neighbors of the danger. Later, she hid them in her room, and when the police patrol came to search the building, she told them that another police patrol had already arrested the Jewish neighbors. Thus, she saved the lives of six Jews: Knoll Filip, Knoll Maier, Carol Schonfeld, I. Morghenstern, Nathan Brill, Mathes Jack.
In January 1987, the Yad Vashem Institute awarded her the title of ”Righteous Among the Nations” for risking her life to save Jews.
