Death of Simon Wiesenthal
Statement by Secretary Condoleezza Rice
September 21, 2005
I am saddened by the death of Simon Wiesenthal. For over 50 years, he played a central role in the investigation of
Nazi war criminals and Holocaust research. In addition to his efforts to commemorate over six million Holocaust victims
and to seek justice for survivors, Mr. Wiesenthal will be remembered as an eloquent spokesman against anti-Semitism and
racism and for using the Jewish experience in World War II as a lesson for all humanity.
