Nazi Hunter Passes Away

Simon Wiesenthal, famed Nazi hunter, died today at the age of 96. A man who devoted his life to bringing closure for the living and justice for the dead, his passing brings a moment of sadness to the world. Let us hope his memory will be used to strenghten the rights of the weak.

Update: the US Senate will vote on a resolution in his memory, in recognition of "his legacy of promoting tolerance, justice and human rights."
