`British Schindler' honoured

By Ben Aris

BERLIN, NOV. 25. The man billed as Britain's answer to Oskar Schindler has been finally honoured by Britain, 60 years after he helped up to 10,000 Jews escape from Nazi Germany. Frank Foley worked as an intelligence chief in the 1920s and 30s at the British embassy in Berlin, where the current ambassador, Peter Torry, unveiled a plaque in his honour. Publicly, Foley headed the embassy's visa section and had no diplomatic immunity. Once the pogroms against the Jews began in the early 30s, he ignored strict regulations and issued thousands of visas to Jews. — © Guardian Newspapers Limited 2004
