The Mormon church has apologized for the posthumous baptism of the parents of Simon Wiesenthal. A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints last month submitted the names of Wiesenthal's parents for posthumous baptism, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. Wiesenthal was a Holocaust survivor who died in 2005; his mother was killed in the Nazi death camp Belzec in 1942.
