Charles Coward - The Count of Auschwitz

#1
Just finished reading the Password is Courage - the story of BSM Charles Coward who helped hundreds of jews escape from Auschwitz. Can anyone tell me if he was ever awarded a medal by the brits for his action (which include major works of sabotage while a prisoner)

I know the Israelis gave him a medal for saving Jews - one of only two to Brits - the other was Churchill!

Didn't Dirk Bogarde play him in a film of the same name?
