Simon Wiesenthal No Longer Technically "Survivor"
Simon Wiesenthal, who managed to escape death in 5 concentration camps and spent the remainder of his life bringing to justice escaped Nazis, died anyway yesterday at the age of 96.
Wiesenthal, who helped find one-time SS leader Adolf Eichmann and the policeman who arrested Anne Frank, died in his sleep at his home in Vienna, said Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles.
"I think he'll be remembered as the conscience of the Holocaust. In a way he became the permanent representative of the victims of the Holocaust, determined to bring the perpetrators of the greatest crime to justice," Hier told The Associated Press.
