Dear Berti,

Thank you very much for this information.
The cooperation of the Metropolit Tit Simedrea in hiding Jews during
the holocaust, was mentioned previously by a message to this list.
If anyone could point me to the particular message or any other information,
regarding the metropolit's actions during WW2, I would be most grateful.
