Eurnekian Honours Holocaust Heroes


The Raoul Wallenberg Foundation chaired by Argentine businessman Eduardo Eurnekian is identifying and awarding a series of convents and monasteries around Europe which served as safe havens for people persecuted by the Nazi regime during the Holocaust.

Last Friday, a ceremony in the Instituto Suore San Giuseppe honoured the work of Sor Emerenziana Bolledi, whose effort saved 60 victims from genocide in Rome, Italy.

So far, more than 200 catholic institutions have been identified as Houses of Life by the Foundation around Europe.
