One of our era's great men has died. Simon Wiesenthal, Holocaust survivor, Nazi hunter, and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, passed away earlier today at age 96. He bore witness to one of the most terrible crimes in human history and dedicated himself entirely to remembering its victims and seeking justice against their murderers. He was a voice for moral integrity every day of his life.
God Bless You, Mr. Wiesenthal.
