After committing her life to seeking justice for the Jewish people as a Nazi hunter, Beate Klarsfeld has been welcomed by the Jewish state as an official citizen.

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri presented Klarsfeld, who is not Jewish, with the citizenship earlier this week at a ceremony in Jerusalem.

“It is an honor for me to confer upon you Israeli citizenship,” Deri said at the ceremony, according to the French daily Le Monde. “You are a hero who has dedicated her life to the Jewish people.”
