Simon Wiesenthal dies

HOLOCAUST survivor Simon Wiesenthal, an untiring campaigner who helped track down hundreds of Nazi war criminals, has died in Vienna aged 96, his pressure group has announced.

Mr Wiesenthal was the world’s most intrepid hunter of Nazi war criminals, bringing more than a thousand to trial in a global campaign to ensure no one forgot the horror of Adolf Hitler’s treatment of the Jews.

I always agreed with his premise… there is no statute of limitations on mass murder and he never forgot or forgave the obscenity that was the Holocuast.

He did his best.
