   French Jews have reacted in horror at reports President Emmanuel Macron will honor Marshal Philippe P├ętain, 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.
