Simon Wiesenthal eschewed most labels affixed to him, preferring "survivor" above all else. To me, he is a hero of Earth. This fact really stands out when you consider how his life's work has been so repetitiously maligned after the fact. The same thing happens to all the real heavy hitters for light and justice. When you make it your business to expose the darkness and ignorance which fertilizes the banality of evil, well... everything that scurries for the crevices will eventually come looking for who flicked the switch on. When you raise your hand for righteousness, you might lose a couple of fingers. Simon Wiesenthal not only clearly realized this but instead of shying away from that dynamic, he dove in head first. To be sure, Wiesenthal made many different statements that, when reviewed by modern day historians, especially those already looking to the scenario with a critical eye could seem to be contradictory or confusing. One must consider the political, social and ultimately GLOBAL milieu that Wiesenthal was operating in and without entering into territory of justifications, suffice it to say - nobody really knows the exact details of what Mr. Wiesenthal did or HAD to do in his time here to affect the change he did. Nobody that is except for himself and possibly the people he brought to justice.

A great example of this insanely harsh criticism is that of Mr. Wiesenthal's inflation of the number of concentration camps in which he had been interred. In many critical pieces you will find statements that suggest the claim of being in more than thirteen genocidal death camps is incorrect and that Mr. Wiesenthal had been in "...no more than six camps.

this presentation was dificult at times to listen and watch. It was eye opening. The facts presented made one think and wonder. It was extreemly well done.

This man took on the responsibility of locating and prosecuting many of the Nazis who evaded the Nuremberg trials, and while way too many never were found, he did get Adolph Eichmann, one notorious bastard who became the head of the concentration camps. He was captive himself at Auschwitz, and went from a successful career as an architect to a life devoted to prosecution and pursuit of those Nazis who thought they had escaped! One has to admire this man, but his efforts were often met with serious resistance and no cooperation from law and other national officials! Some even demonstrated and protested what he was doing, and this was in the 50s and 60s!

While true justice is something this life rarely finds, Simon lived and acted as he promised those that were murdered by the Nazis… he said, 'I have never forgotten you' and somehow, I have to believe, when he passed on, there were over 6 million souls who met this man in the next life… they could not help but remember and welcome him!
