A Legend Dies

Photo Credit: Simon Wiesenthal Center

Very Sad. Simon Wiesenthal, "The Conscience of the Holocaust," has died today in Vienna at the age of 96. He certainly lived a full and very productive life, managing to bring many Nazi war criminals to justice and shedding light on the evils of anti-semitism. May there be many more that spring up in his place, cut from his cloth. Rest in Peace, sir.
