The Anti-Defamation League gave French President Jacques Chirac its Distinguished Statesman Award. Chirac received the honor for his historic 1995 speech apologizing for France’s role in the deportation of some 76,000 Jews to Nazi death camps during World War II. Chirac was the first French president to publicly acknowledge his country’s responsibility in the persecution of Jews.
