"The honor bestowed by Pope Benedict XVI on Sister Sara Salkahazi for risking and eventually giving her life to save Jews in peril is an important statement by the church. It is unfortunate that there were not more individuals like Sister Sara, but her example must be held up to demonstrate how lives can be saved when good people take action to confront evil."- Abraham Foxman
Unit 1012 will honor and always remember Sister Sára Salkaházi, every year on December 27, as she was executed on that date in 1944. We do not remember her only on her feast day but also on her beatification day on September 17, 2006. We will remember and honor her for saving the lives of approximately 100 Jews during World War II and she rightfully deserves to be recognized by the State of Israel as Righteous among the Nations.
