Simon Wiesenthal, Holocaust survivor turned Nazi hunter, has passed away at the age of 96. In a time when many would have preferred to forget and ignore the Holocaust, Wiesenthal dedicated his life to finding those responsible and bringing them to justice.
The evil spirit of the Holocaust is not as far in the past as it should be. The vile attitudes of anti-Semitism still exist in our world today. Wiesenthal may be gone, but his work will continue so long as injustice and anti-Semitism plague our world.
