I am wondering if this is one of our saint and if he could be have been an Orthodox Priest as he was carrying anointing oil.

Has any rendering from the eyewitnesses been provided so that he might be identified?

Yes, and our priests are called Eastern Orthodox Catholic Priests and they do carry anointing oil too. Often, Orthodox Priests wear the Roman collar and are mistaken for Roman Catholic Priests.

However, please take a look at this video and see if you recognize him as a Catholic saint. Could he be the saintly Franciscan Priest who died in a Nazi prison camp offering his life for another?

I don't recognize him. he doesn't have to be a saint. It could have been an Angel of the Lord.

I think he could very well have been an angel.

Look at this sketch and then look at the picture from Michie's post in OBOB:

Bernhard Lichtenberg

Blessed Bernhard Lichtenberg was a German Catholic priest from Ohlau in Prussian Silesia who had served as a military chaplain in the First World War. He was 62 years old and the provost of the Cathedral of St Hedwig in Berlin when Kristallnacht, the notorious Nazi pogrom, convulsed Germany.

He responded to the atrocity by closing each evening’s Mass with a prayer for “the Jews and the other poor prisoners in the concentration camps”.

On October 23 1942 he also offered a public prayer for Jews who were being deported to the death camps of the East, urging worshippers to observe Christ’s commandment to “love their neighbour” specifically in relation to the Jews.

Blessed Bernhard was denounced to the authorities. He stood trial and was sentenced to two years of hard labour in Dachau concentration camp but died “on the way”. His tomb is in St Hedwig’s cathedral.

The priest was also a courageous critic of the Nazi euthanasia programme, writing in protest to the chief medical officer of the Reich.

He was beatified by Pope John Paul II on June 23 1996.
This looks like a very close match.
