On January 18th, 2007 President Jacques Chirac, at the invitation of the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah and its president, Simone Veil, pays homage, in the name of the people of France, to the Justes of France and all those anonymous French men and women who saved the lives of Jews during the Occupation.
