Macron's going to honor a man who turned traitor during WW2

Emmanuel Macron's caused much offense and disgust by planning to honor Phillipe Petain, the army general who ostensibly served well during WW1, but became a Vichy traitor during WW2, and was responsible for sending many Jews to their doom in Vel d'Hiv:
French Jews have reacted in horror at reports President Emmanuel Macron will honor Marshal Philippe Pétain, the disgraced Nazi collaborator who authorised the deportation of tens of thousands of Jews to death camps.

Marshal Petain’s name appears alongside seven other military chiefs to be honored Saturday in a ceremony at the Invalides monument, site of Napoleon’s tomb, to mark the centenary of the end of World War 1.

Petain led the French army to victory in Verdun in 1916, but gained lasting infamy and a conviction for treason for his leadership of Nazi-sanctioned Vichy France during World War II.

In 1940, with France under attack from Germany, Pétain was appointed vice-premier. He later asked for an armistice, upon which he was appointed “chief of state”, enjoying almost absolute powers.

The armistice gave the Germans control over the north and west of France, including Paris, but left the remainder as a separate regime under Pétain.

Officially neutral, in practice the regime collaborated closely with Germany, and brought in its own anti-Semitic legislation.

Touring battlefields ahead of a formal commemoration of the Nov. 11, 1918, armistice that ended the war, Macron said Petain was still worthy of the honor for his leading role in the World War I victory despite his later record.
I think this pretty much dissolves all notion Macron's any better than some of his predecessors at understanding history and psychology. It compounds the arrogant persona he's becoming known for, and will only ensure he winds up with his own little niche in history that doesn't remember him fondly either.

Update: following backlash by the Jewish community and Israeli minister Naftali Bennett, it looks like Macron's had to backtrack:
In the wake of the criticism, Macron’s spokesperson confirmed Petain’s name would not be mentioned during the ceremony, adding that the French President would not be attending Saturday’s ceremony.
Well it's not enough to just "stay home". He has to apologize for his incredibly abominable, irresponsible conduct to boot, and so far, that doesn't look like it's the case. He certainly shouldn't be attending any ceremonies of these sorts, now that the mask is off of him. Some more news here.

Actually, ALL OF FRANCE turned traitor during WW2, because:

“On March 7 [of 1936 CE] he [Adolph Hitler]
ordered troops to march into the Rhineland
and occupy it.

Surprisingly, French military forces did not retaliate.

Hitler had taken possession of the
region without firing a single shot.”

BOTTOM LINE::

We Jews need to unite, because nobody else
is going to help us, except for each other.
