The Vatican's 'Scarlet Pimpernel' Remembered

Relatives of Hugh O’Flaherty, the Irish priest who saved 6500 individuals wanted by the Nazis during the war, are to visit Rome in October to see the places that marked his life.


Amazing, Gregory Peck played this Priest in the movie “The Scarlet and the Black” which the article references.

The article states:

“British soldier Sam Derry, who assisted the priest and lived with him in the Santa Maria building in the Vatican between 8 and 12 October, will come to the Eternal City to visit all the places that are linked to O’Flaherty.”-±+All+News

Rest in Peace, what a bit of history, I will have to go find this movie.

We have that movie and just watched it again a few days ago. Gregory did a great job. Quite believeable.:thumbsup:
