Character description

Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, CBE (28 February 1898 – 30 October 1963) was an Irish Roman Catholic priest and senior official of the Roman Curia, and significant figure in Catholic resistance to Nazism. During World War II, he was responsible for saving 6,500 Allied soldiers and Jews. His ability to evade the traps set by the German Gestapo and Sicherheitsdienst, earned O'Flaherty the nickname "The Scarlet Pimpernel of the Vatican". He was the first Irishman named Notary of the Holy Office.
