Major Frank Foley (Wikispaces) (Wikispaces)

At the start of World War II, Major Frank Foley was stationed as a spy in Berlin, where he used his position to save 10,000 Jews from the clutches of the Nazi regime. 

Major Foley did not expect to become a military man. In fact, he was studying to become a Roman Catholic priest when Hitler began his rise to power.

Foley realized that his duty was first and foremost to serve and protect his country, and so he joined the military and became a British Secret Intelligence Service officer.

The British government has formally honored this hero who went so far as to enter concentration camps in order to hand out forged passports. He also sheltered Jews in his home.
