PARIS CARDINAL LISTS MOTHER IN RECORD OF HOLOCAUST DEAD

          PARIS (CWNews.com) - Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger of Paris took part on Monday in the annual public reading of names of the 76,000 Jews sent from France to Nazi concentration camps, reading the part of the list which included his mother.

          The Jewish-born cardinal announced the name "Gisele Lustiger," paused and added "ma maman" (my mum) before continuing. The cardinal's mother was killed at the Auschwitz death camp after being arrested in Paris along with his father and sister. The then-Aron Lustiger, 11, had been hidden in a Catholic school outside Paris where he later converted to Catholicism.

          The name-reading ceremony is a 24-hour annual event, held on Holocaust Day, in which volunteers read aloud the names of those sent to death camps. Cardinal Lustiger had taken part in the ceremony in past years, but this was the first time he took part in the name reading.
