CNN: Cyclist who helped save Italy's Jews from Nazis honored with new innovative cycling school

"The memory of Gino Bartali, the champion cyclist who risked his life to save hundreds of Italian Jews during the Holocaust, is set to be honored with the establishment with a youth leadership school in his name.

Italian Bartali, one of the world's leading cyclists during the 1930s winning three Giro d'Italia titles and the 1938 Tour de France, used the handlebars on his bike to hide counterfeit identity papers, delivering them to Jews in hiding and handing over exit visas which allowed them to escape transportation to the death camps."
