Father Brunacci, Holocaust Hero

During World War II, Italian Catholic priest Don Aldo Brunacci helped save more than 200 Jews. Brunacci says the Nazi's brutal Italian campaign actually helped his efforts to save Jews. Last week, Brunacci — now 90 — received a humanitarian award at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. He speaks with NPR's Bob Edwards.
