Carl Lutz, was Switzerland’s vice consul in Budapest from 1942 to 1945,
He persuaded the Germans to let him issue diplomatic letters of protection, 8,000 of them. He then applied the letters not to individuals, as the Germans had intended, but to entire families. And once he reached 7,999, he simply started again at number 1, hoping the Nazis would not notice the duplication.
Historians estimate the letters saved up to 62,000 people.”
