Saying thank you after 73 years

A small historic amendment was made Monday, 73 years after Philippine President Manuel Luis Quezon granted some 1,200 visas to immigrants from Europe on the eve of the Holocaust, when a marble engraved sign in his honor was revealed at the Boys Town Jerusalem campus – as an acknowledgement of the humanitarian gesture.

Philippine Ambassador to Israel Petronila Garcia received a merit certificate from Josh Weston, chairman of the Boys Town Jerusalem Foundation of America, who arrived for the ceremony especially from the United States.
