Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal has been given an honorary knighthood by Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. The award was made in recognition of a “lifetime of service to humanity.” British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said Thursday that Wiesenthal had been “untiring in his service to the Jewish communities in the U.K. and elsewhere by helping to right at least some of the awful wrongs of the Holocaust.”
