One who was at least officially beatified is Mother Theresa, "Blessed Teresa of Calcutta". I think there needs at least one miracle to be credited to her to make her an applicant for the actual "St. title" (the Catholics will know better).

I think during all wars there were many people (not all appropriately remembered) who acted in an extraordinary human way to help others while facing the danger or fact of having to sacrifice their own lives. As for WWII, Otto Schindler and Dietrich Bonhöffer come to my mind first.

Two further persons who followed an exceptional path in life in order to help others to me were Ghandi and Albert Schweitzer.
