The Catholic Church honored a Hungarian nun who saved dozens of Jews during World War II. Sara Salkahazi was beatified, the last step before sainthood, during Sunday Mass in Budapest. Salkahazi was killed in December 1944 by Hungary’s wartime fascist regime for hiding Jews in the building used by her religious order.
