Tom Lantos

β€œIt is only in the United States that a penniless survivor of the Holocaust and a fighter in the anti-Nazi underground could have received an education, raised a family and had the privilege of serving the last three decades of his life as a member of Congress. I will never be able to express fully my profoundly felt gratitude to this great country.” β€” Representative Tom Lantos, dead today at the age of 80. Baruch dayan emet.
