A man dedicated to confronting Germany’s Nazi past and helping rebuild ties with Jews will receive his country’s highest honor. Manfred Karnetzki, 75, will receive Germany’s Order of Merit in a Berlin ceremony Tuesday. From 1993 to 2001, Karnetzki headed the Action Reconciliation Peace Service organization, a Protestant group that sends young Germans to work with Holocaust survivors around the world.
