Yad VaShem Acknowledges Belgian Righteous Gentiles

Yad VaShem will acknowledge the late Righteous Gentiles Josef and Louise Mattern of Belgium for adopting two-year-old Zanon Fiertag in 1942. His mother survived the holocaust and immigrated to Israel with Zanon seven years later. She remarried Yosef-Aharon Schiffer and the child, now Zalman Schiffer, only restored the connection with the sister of the adopted son of his late foster parents many years later.
