Former Italian Cyclist Named Righteous Gentile

FSWC Reports:

From ynetnews.com:

Decades after he saved Jews from the hands of the Nazis, the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem has decided to recognize Gino Bartali as a Righteous Among the Nations.

In the 1930s and 1940s, Bartali's reputation preceded him across Europe. At the time, the Italian from Florence was the most famous cyclist and was considered a national hero in his country.
