Remembering a Hero

Sports figures aren't heros - heros are people like Frank Foley.

From the BBC:
Frank Foley was based in Berlin in the 1930s, working as a passport control officer, and using his position to provide papers for Jewish people.

It is believed Mr Foley saved tens of thousands of lives ...

He not only interpreted the rules on visas loosely, enabling Jews to escape to Britain and Palestine, but he also helped to forge passports.

And, despite not having diplomatic immunity, he gave shelter to some people in his own home.

...with Foley a lot of the people he helped probably didn't even know he helped them.

"Courage is who you are in the dark."
