Pere Marie-Benoit Rescues Jews

A tree at the Yad Vashem Holocaust remembers a French priest, Pere Marie-Benoit for rescuing thousands of Jews in France and Italy.

In 1966, Israel honored him as one of the Righteous Among the Nations.

And now, Susan Zuccotti authored a book about him, Pere Marie-Benoit and Jewish Rescue.

This Catholic pastor showed empathy for Jews where faithful Catholics were persecuted in France.

Experiences in one's own life motivate others to a call to action to assist others.

Suffering is like that.

It is.

Evil can be overcome despite people who kill and live the lie.
