Sir Sigmund Sternberg, a Hungarian-born businessman who settled in London in 1939, was a tireless force for interfaith dialogue over five decades.
His quiet diplomacy played a critical role in relocating a Carmelite convent at Auschwitz in 1993, helping to organize the first papal visit to a synagogue in 1986, cultivating links which led to the recognition of the State of Israel by the Holy See in 1993, and promoting better relations among Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
