That was truly and example of "greater love hath no man than he that give his life for another". May the angels take him into Paradise.

A Holocaust survivor! What a beautiful example of courage and love.

May he rest in peace.

His story really moved me too and we were all struck by his being a Holocaust survivor. There's some sort of poetic irony (even though it's a sad sort of irony) in that. Let's just say that I'm very grateful that he survived the Holocaust to bring hope and something good - something a little brighter - to all of us in the midst of this horrible tragedy. I'd like to know more about him.

True.

I'd like to know more about him.

If you find anything else, please let me know.

I wanted to say that in addition to being a beautiful example of courage and love, he has also shown us what it truly means to have strength.

Not sure if you've read this one yet (it's an AP article, I believe):
