Konstanty-Rokicki

Vice-Consul at the Polish Consulate in Bern, was named Righteous Among the Nation February 19, 2019 for his role in issuing thousands of false Paraguayan passports to Jews trapped in Polish ghettos and the occupied Netherlands. Rokicki bribed the honorary consul of Paraguay in Bern to supply the blank passports, which were then filled out with the information of Jews needing protection. Paraguay temporarily bowed to pressure from the Polish government-in-exile and the Holy See to recognize the validity of the passports, thus saving at least hundreds of Jews.
