Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them.

"She saved the lives of many Jews. She also helped American soldiers and allies, so they could do their work as spies in France and mainly in Paris, when it was occupied by the Nazis.”

She was born and raised in Peru and attended Catholic schools.  Her parents were French immigrants, so she grew up speaking both French and Spanish. She eventually went to live in Paris to work as a translator, where her bilingual skills were key in helping people escape the Nazi regime.
