The "Mexican Schindler"

The LA Times had a story about Gilberto Bosques Saldívar, a Mexican diplomat in Marseilles who saved about 40,000 Jews during WWII. He was honored last month by the Anti-Defamation League. His daughter accepted the honor on his behalf (he died in 1995 at the age of 103).

It's amazing how much history we are still uncovering about that era.
