A French Catholic priest who was born Jewish and saved hundreds during the Holocaust was named a Righteous Gentile. Father Alexandre Glasberg was honored Monday by the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem. Glasberg, who was born in Ukraine to Jewish parents but was baptized at an early age, founded the Amitie Chretien movement, which found safe houses for Jews in the non-occupied zone of France.
