Marek Edelman 1922 - 2009

It's with not a little emotion that I record that Marek Edelman, one of the most outstanding resistance fighters of World War II and the last living leader of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising has died.

Thanks to the heroism of Edelman and those like him, people like me, the descendents of those who were victims of Nazi brutality are alive today. Edelman's unforgettable example, of steadfast courage, of defiant resistance to evil - he was in his early twenties when he fought in the Warsaw Ghetto - will be a constant inspiration to anti-fascists everywhere.

May God bless him. Requiescat in Pace.
