Poland: 3 priests, 2 nuns named ‘righteous among nations’
Catholic World News - June 20, 2014
Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust memorial, has honored three Polish priests and two Polish nuns for their efforts to save Jews during World War II, enrolling them in the list of “Righteous among the Nations.”
Zri Rav-Ner, Israel’s ambassador to Poland, presented the posthumous awards at a meeting of the Polish bishops.
Rav-Ner told Polskie Radio that “it is important to show that so many people in the Church have been saving Jews when they risked their own lives, sometimes without special orders or instructions from anybody, but just because their own conscience and religious conviction made them do it.”
