Jerusalem, November 26 - Cardinal Elia Angelo Dalla
Costa, the archbishop of Florence during World War II, was
declared "Righteous among the Nations" by the Yad Vashem
Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem on Monday for his role in saving
hundreds of Jews.
Righteous among the Nations is an honor in Israel given to
non-Jews who risked their lives during the Holocaust to help
Jews escape Nazi persecution.
The archbishop was known as "the Cardinal of Charity" for
helping save the lives of thousands of Italians, in addition to
Jews, under the Fascist regime.
In 1981, 20 years after his death, the Vatican began the
process of beatification.
