Antal Uhl (1902–1982) was a Roman Catholic pastor. He was ordained as priest in 1924 in Bakócza. In 1927, he was made chaplain in Hőgyész and then in Pécsvárad. Beginning in 1931, he served as the pastor of the Hungarian workers in France in the city of Lille. After the German occupation (1941), he was sent to Paris, where he became the leader of the Hungarian Catholic Mission. In 1942, he smuggled from Budapest to Paris approximately 500 Hungarian citizenship identification cards to Hungarian-Jewish people to save them from deportation. He wrote hundreds of membership confirmation forms of the Hungarian Catholic Mission to Hungarian Jews in Paris so that they could freely use public transport. He was arrested by the Gestapo in October 1942 and was sentenced to restricted prison for 5 months in January 1943. Before having begun to serve his sentence, he was released, and he escaped to Hungary. He became an administrator and later a pastor in Baranyaszentgyörgy. After the war, he was summoned to the people’s tribunal of Pécs because he opposed the deportation of Hungarian Germans. He became a titular provost in 1971. He died as the pastor of Baranyaszentgyörgy in 1982.
