Absolutely phenomenal!!

An Israeli Mizrachi man walked into the Great Synagogue in Italy (Florence) and started singing Oseh Shalom…just wow!
When the Nazis occupied Florence, this very synagogue was the headquarters for Nazi artillery storage. When the Nazis were retreating, the entire building was wired to be blown up. The Nazis dragged their wires several blocks away. As they were doing this, the non-Jewish caretaker was able to dismantle all of the bombs, leaving only one in an area of the building where, if blown up, would not threaten the structure. He did this, so that when the Nazis detonated, they would hear an explosion and leave.
Because of that Righteous Gentile, the magnificent Synagogue of Florence was saved. The dip in the floor is where the bomb went off.
