Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

Constantin Karadja was a Romanian diplomat credited with saving the lives of 51,000 Jews. He spoke nine languages, studied law and became a barrister in England before becoming the Romanian Consul General for Romania in Berlin during World War II. His energies went into protecting the human rights of Romanian Jews trapped in Nazi Germany. Karadja’s signature appears on a visa on page 11 of Walter Meyerkort’s Reisepass as Consul General for Romania.

Constantin Karadja was awarded Yad Vashem’s “Righteous Among the Nations” honor for saving the lives of Romanian Jews during World War II and putting himself and his career at great risk in doing so.
