Tom Lantos, z”l, the Bay Area Congressman (D – San Mateo), Holocaust survivor, and humanitarian, has died today. Presumably from complications surrounding his recently announced diagnosis of esophageal cancer. He was 80.

G-d has taken a hero from the Jewish people. May his memory be for a blessing.
