A plaque was unveiled in a southern French town for Josef Fisera, who saved dozens of Jews from the Holocaust. Fisera, a leading figure in the Czechoslovak exile movement during World War II, established the Christian Children’s Home in 1941. At the school he provided Jews, including 82 children, with false papers indicating they were Czechoslovak Protestants.
