Macron Slammed for Praising Nazi Collaborator Who Deported Jews During Holocaust

An umbrella organization of French Jewish groups have criticized the French leader for paying tribute to a World War I Marshall Philippe Petain, who ended up becoming a Nazi collaborator later in history.

The president of the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions (CRIF), Francis Kalifat, reportedly said he was shocked by Macron's statement on Wednesday.

"Petain was the person who allowed the deportation of 76,000 French Jews to death camps. Petain signed the (law on) the status of Jews that meant Jews were excluded from public function, education and forced to wear the Jewish star," he added.
