Italian cardinal honored by Israel's Holocaust memorial

Catholic World News - November 27, 2012

Yad Vashem, Israel’s memorial to Holocaust victims, has named an Italian cardinal of the World War II era “Righteous among the Nations”—an honor bestowed on those who made heroic efforts to save Jews from the Nazi genocide campaign.

Cardinal Elia Dalla Costa, who was Archbishop of Florence from 1931 until his death in 1961, is credited with saving thousands of people from Nazi persecution. The Vatican is now considering a cause for his beatification.
