    Thanks for pointing this out, Paul. Must admit I hadn't heard of it before.

    A shame that so many of his honors were posthumous.

    Well done Gunny, I have heard of this fine gentleman before, but it is a real pleasure to see him recognised once more. One of the lesser known and appreciated men against Fascism, who most likely has been slightly over looked due to not being a European. Leon.

    I have heard about his heroic actions but never had a face or name to go with the story. Thanks for posting his interesting story. A man such as he should never be forgotten.

    Well worth mentioning indeed. I visited his memorial in Vilnius - Lithuania in 2011.

    It is just outside the "Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum".
