Some 150 Holocaust survivors paid tribute to a village in France that hid them from the Nazis. Many of the survivors, who were cared for during World War II in a children’s home run by France’s Jewish Scout movement, came from as far away as Australia, Canada and Israel for the dedication of a square in the village of Moissac in southwest France, in honor of Shatta and Bouli Simon, who ran the home.
