Leon Greenman RIP

Leon Greenman, (1910-2008)Auschwitz survivor 98288, 'the only Englishman sent to Auschwitz' has passed away. Those who had the fortune to hear him tell his story will never forget either it or him. Greenman's tireless, heroic and tremendous commitment to educating young people about the utter barbarism of the Nazi Holocaust and warning people about the continuing fascist threat, even into his nineties, was a truly inspirational contribution and one which will be sorely missed in the struggles ahead.

Certainly agree with your sentiments comrade. Looks like we're the only two left blogs (leaving aside anti-fascist sources) that have picked up on this.

I hope our generation will still be going in my 90s, though at the same time I also hope we won't need to.
