A Hungarian nun who helped saved the lives of dozens of Jews during World War II will be beatified by the Catholic Church, officials said Monday. Sara Salkahazi was killed by the Arrow Cross - the Hungarian allies of the Nazis - on December 27, 1944 for hiding Jews in a Budapest building used by her religious order, the Sisters of Social Service. Salkahazi was taken along with several other occupants of the home and shot, their bodies falling into the Danube River and never recovered. The beatification rite will take place September 17 at Budapest's St. Stephen Basilica.
