    Brief Narrative
    Pearl necklace worn by Frida Kuonne during World War II and given to Isuf and Niqi Panariti. The Panaratis helped Frida and her parents Mari and Eli Kuonne, Greek Jews from Thessaloniki, escape illegally into Korce, Albania. The Kuonnes lived with Isuf and Niqi until Eli Kuonne joined the partisans. Mari and Frida then moved to a remote village to stay with Niqi's family. The Kuonnes returned to Greece after liberation. The Panaritis were recognized as Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem in 2014.
